“Life After Loss” Support Group

Has it been two years or more since you lost your spouse or life partner?

If so, consider being part of WinterSpring’s new “Life After Loss” group, specially designed for those who have moved beyond the initial stages of grief but are still feeling the impact of their beloved’s absence in their everyday lives…  This group offers a chance to connect with others who have also traveled some distance down the road of “the new normal.”
