Support Group for Those Who Have Lost Loved Ones During the Pandemic

Tuesday, June 2, 2020

The loss of a loved one is hard at any time. But for people who have suffered losses during the COVID pandemic, social distancing and stay at home advisories have made mourning even more difficult. Most religions build in practices to offer support to the mourner. And outside of formal religions, friends will gather round to support the person as well. Funerals, wakes, visitation hours allows friends and families to come together to help mourners in the aftermath of the death but with the COVID crisis these may be delayed or may not happen at all. So dealing with deaths now is especially difficult. The COA invites you to join a new support group for those who have lost a loved one during the pandemic. The group will be held via Zoom on Tuesday afternoons at 1 pm for four weeks beginning June 5. Claire Gerstein, LICSW, a social worker with many years experience helping people cope with loss, will lead the group. To sign up for the group, please contact bottumc@lincolntown.org.
