Lyme Connection is starting a second evening support group for patients suffering from Lyme and other tick-borne diseases on Sept. 22.
The new meeting, facilitated by Lisa Oren, MSW, LCSW, will be held on the second Thursday of every month, from 5 to 7 p.m. This is an open format support group. The goal is to generate supportive, positive energy between members, share information and experiences, and ask questions.
There may be occasions that are topic focused with the theme coming from members’ suggestions. The last approximately 15 to 30 minutes of the group will be available for small group and personal conversations.
Lyme Connection will continue to hold its original support group on the second Thursday of every month, also from 5 to 7 p.m.
Support groups are held in the Town Hall Annex at 66 Prospect St. Lyme Connection is a Town of Ridgefield committee dedicated to supporting patients and improving the health of our community.
The organization has held monthly support groups for Lyme disease patients and their families since 2007. Special topics, guest speakers and holiday/ weather cancellations are posted on the group’s website, LymeConnection.org.
