Updated 9:56 am, Monday, September 12, 2011
The free group will meet for 90 minutes on eight consecutive Tuesdays, beginning Sept. 19 and continuing through Nov. 1 Meetings are scheduled from 1:30 to 3 p.m. at Visiting Nurse's Wilton offices in Suite 114 of the Health and Wellness Center of Norwalk Hospital at I-Park, 761 Main Ave.
The agency said the needs of a person with a chronic disease or debilitating condition can become the central focus of the caregiver's life. The caregiver, who often is elderly, can experience a combination of fear, loneliness, grief and isolation.
