The VNA Carenetwork/Hospice offers a Bereavement Support Group to anyone in the Northborough area who is suffering a loss by death. There is no cost to attend the group and registration is not required. The group meetings have been and will continue be held at the Northborough Senior Center on 119 Bearfoot Rd. in Northborough. Some of the issues and concerns we will be discussing that are common to newly bereaved folks include: • What to make of the anger, discouragement and guilt experienced in grief.
• How to deal with the unfair expectations of other people-
• Where to look for people you can trust to help you.
• How to manage the holidays and other special occasions in grief.
• Who to consider for additional support if you need it.
• How to take care of yourself physically.
The Bistro @119 located at the Senior Center will be open for lunch on Tuesdays
each week @ 12:00 noon which may be helpful for anyone wanting to attend
the Support Group. For more information please contact Ted MacNeil,
