Published Mar 5, 2018 at 4:00pm

NEW HARTFORD — Hospice & Palliative Care, Inc. is offering a “Spousal Loss” support group for anyone who has experienced the death of a spouse or partner.

The group will be facilitated by Licensed Clinical Social Worker Janet Benjamin and will meet on Tuesdays from 2-3:30 p.m. from March 20 through April 24.

To register, contact Benjamin at 315-735-648, ext. 1007 by March 13.

All groups are free and meet at 4277 Middle Settlement Road.

The length of the marriage or committed relationship does not determine the depth of grief. The group focuses on normal responses to grief and the tasks of mourning, as well as providing a safe place to share feelings and experiences, to ask questions, and to seek comfort. It is a place to give and seek support.
