Finding people to support you is perhaps the most important thing you can do following the loss of someone you love. If a significant person in your life has died of cancer, Gilda’s Club Westchester is here to help with this difficult time. We offer a place where that individuals who are living with loss can receive support for feeling the many emotions that are often experienced during grief. Our bereavement support groups are for family members, friends or caregivers who have lost a loved one to cancer.
Facilitated by licensed mental health professionals, support groups provide ongoing emotional and social support for those impacted by cancer.
- Living with Loss Group – A weekly group and for adults who have had a significant person in their lives die of cancer.
- Next Steps Bereavement Group – A bi-weekly group for adults who are entering the next stage in their grieving process. Most members experienced their loss over a year ago.
Educational lectures and healthy lifestyle workshops offer a chance to acquire skills, tools, information, and techniques for individuals impacted by cancer in any way, including those living with loss. The larger purpose of this is to regain control and well-being. All lectures take place at the Clubhouse and offer individuals the opportunity to build emotional and social bonds together. The Clubhouse is equipped with a spacious and light-filled exercise studio for physical activity classes (such as yoga and Pilates), an art studio for expressive arts classes, and a full kitchen for workshops on nutrition and healthy cooking.
