Starting May 18, SAGE Eldercare will offer a free bereavement support group for people age 60 or over who have lost a spouse in the last year.

 

The support group will be led by Licensed Clinical Social Worker Kathy Larkin, SAGE’s InfoCare Manager, and provide the opportunity to understand the grieving process, gain emotional support, and share coping strategies.  The group will meet weekly and run May 25 through July 27, 2 – 3:30 pm at SAGE, 290 Broad Street, Summit.

 

“Grieving is part of the healing process after a loss, but it is not easy.  Meeting with others who can relate can be very beneficial during this time,” said Larkin.

 

Pre-registration is required. To register, or for more information, please call Kathy Larkin at: 908.598.5509.
