Workshops tackle aging, loss



ELLSWORTH — An aging and loss support workshop series will be offered by Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County at the Friends in Action Senior Center Thursdays, Jan. 18 through Feb. 22, from 1-2:30 p.m.

The program offers support for individuals who have experienced any of a variety of losses associated with aging. These losses may include the death of a spouse, family members and friends; impaired health; financial insecurity; and changes in life roles. The losses associated with aging can result in uncertainty, loneliness, sadness and decreased self-esteem, but support is available to ease these challenges.

The workshop is free of charge, but preregistration is required by Jan. 11. Call Janice Ronco at Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County at 667-2531 or visit hospiceofhancock.org.
