Support Group for Widowed Persons

Sunday, October 20, 2013 - Thursday, November 7, 2013
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Men and women who have lost their spouses are invited to a support group conducted by the Patuxent Widowed Persons Service (PWPS). The group starts meeting Thursday, Oct. 3, and the support sessions end Thursday, Nov. 7. The sessions are 7 to 9 p.m. in the Senior Lounge at the Greenbelt Community Center, 15 Crescent Road, Greenbelt. There is no fee, but pre-registration is required.

Trained volunteers who have also been widowed will conduct the sessions. The participants share personal experiences, exchange information, and discuss published materials prepared by bereavement specialists. In the past, many persons dealing with their new circumstances after losing a wife or husband have received great benefits from the insights, emotional support, practical information, and friendships provided by such groups.

To register and to receive more information and directions call PWPS support group leaders at 301-577-4312 or 301-345-3583.

PWPS support groups are co-sponsored by American Association for Retired Persons (AARP) and the Greenbelt Senior Citizens Advisory Committee.
