Bereavement Support Group In Carroll Gardens

This is the sort of neighborhood information that one wishes never to need, but which is invaluable when one does.
The passing of a loved family member, partner or friend is always traumatic to those who are left behind. The sense of loss, pain and disbelief can sometimes be overwhelming, especially if the passing is sudden and unexpected. Sharing the sorrow with others by joining a bereavement support group offers comfort and guidance through this difficult time.
Long-time colleagues Ethel Barber and Robert Ludwig, both bereavement counselors with many years of experience, are currently providing such a support group specifically for adults/parents who have experienced sudden death of a family member. The sessions are held in a home setting on Degraw Street right here in Carroll Gardens.
