Emotional Well-being


The Anxiety Support Group

Anxiety seems epidemic in the world.  This is a workshop/talking group started by the COA to address this sometimes crippling condition.  It offers chance to share experience and to hear how others are managing.  The group is lead by Carole Hilderbrand, and the dates are posted in the Monthly Activity Calendar.  


Living with Loss

Everyone at sometime will be dealing with the loss of a loved one.  This support group is lead by a Spiritual Advisor from Hospice Care in the Berkshires.  Sessions are scheduled every three months.  For information about meeting day and time call the COA office 413-448-2682.


Safety In the Home

The Lanesborough Volunteer Fire Department offers talks about creating a safe environment at home at lunches and also as part of home visits.  Feeling safe is emotionally comforting and easy to accomplish with some guidance.
