SUMMIT, NJ - SAGE Eldercare will offer a new free, eight-week bereavement support group -- beginning February 5 -- for people age 60 and older who have lost a spouse in the last year. The support group will be led by Kathy Larkin, Licensed Clinical Social Worker and SAGE’s InfoCare Manager.
“Adjusting to the loss of a spouse is a life-changing event and an ongoing process," said Larkin. "During the first year, the world can feel like a different place to the one who is grieving. At this time, it can be helpful to be with others who are on a similar road to share concerns, coping strategies, and fellowship as you move forward."
The group will meet weekly on Tuesday afternoons 2 - 3:30 p.m. and will run through March 26 at SAGE Eldercare, located at 290 Broad Street. Pre-registration is required. To register, or for more information, please call Larkin at 908-598-5509.
SAGE Eldercare has, since 1954, been focused on "helping to make the communities it serves amazing places to age." The organization provides a wide array of information, support, and services designed to help individuals lead the most independent and active lives possible, from helping with errands, to exercise classes, community programs, care planning, and home health care.
