Education, support

The Wolfson palliative care team has specialized knowledge and skills in working with people with chronic illness or those at the end of life. Wolfson staff offer lectures, seminars and workshops throughout the year for the community.

The Wolfson program is also affiliated with numerous universities and academic institutions, and our staff provide regular formal, informal, and clinical instruction in palliative care.

Bereavement support

The Wolfson Palliative Care Program provides bereavement support through limited individual counseling and referral, as well as regularly scheduled group sessions that provide education and support.

A dedicated licensed clinical social worker manages all bereavement services. Please contact Karen Caplan, LCSW at 860-224-5900, X6573 for more information about the bereavement services offered through the Wolfson Program.

Community outreach

The Wolfson team works closely with other Central Connecticut agencies to help patients and their loved ones access community resources and to help ease patients' transitions to different care providers.
