The JCC of the Greater Five Towns will begin a phase 1 bereavement support group for anyone who has lost a spouse within the past year. The initial stages of grief can be a lonely and painful time. Grief is both an emotional and physical response to loss and you may be surprised at the changes and emotions you are experiencing. You are not alone in these feelings and you should not be alone in coping with your grief. If you have experienced the loss of a spouse within the past year, please join for support guidance, friendship, and information. This group will begin on Thursday, November 29, 11:00 a.m. at the JCC at 207 Grove Avenue in Cedarhurst. Pre-registration is required. For more information, please contact Janet Zimmerman, LCSW, at 516-569-6733, ext. 213.
