Support groups

You may benefit from:

  • Caregiver Support Group: Being a Caregiver can be incredibly rewarding. It can also be one of the most difficult and isolating times a person can go through. If you are caring for a family member and have experienced frustration, sadness, guilt or anxiety through your caregiving journey, you are not alone. Take the opportunity to meet other caregivers to share your experiences and learn strategies to reduce your stress. Please contact Miranda Dold, LCSW at (203) 739-4921 or miranda.dold@nuvancehealth.org to learn more.
  • Grief Recovery Method® Grief Support Group: This group meets for eight weeks and offers a step-by-step action program for moving beyond death, divorce and other losses. Group members are expected to attend all sessions. To register or for further information, contact Chaplain Beryl Knudsen, Certified Grief Recovery Specialist at (203) 739-7135 or beryl.knudsen@nuvancehealth.org.
