The Purple Group

Wallingford’s Support Group for Children of Aging Parents has a new mission and a new name – the Purple Group.

* The Purple Group resumes after a summer hiatus on September 20, 2017. Please join us! *

Until recently, Wallingford United Methodist Church hosted a Support Group for Children of Aging Parents, which (per its title) offered care and resources to those facing the challenges of aging or recently deceased family members.

As of 2017, this support group has expanded its focus to include conversations about members’ own aging concerns. With this change in focus comes a new name: the Purple Group. (This name is a nod to a previous Wallingford study that focused on aging.)

Starting March 15th, 2017, the Purple Group will meet on the third Wednesdays of the month. Meetings are at 6:00PM at Nancy Speer’s home. Gatherings will begin with a light meal, followed by supportive conversation.

If you have questions or would like to join the group, contact Sue Sherbrooke at or Nancy Speer at for more information.
