Coffee and Chat

People with dementia and their care partners. Make yourself comfortable, grab a cup of coffee or tea and join some of the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan staff and peers online to say ‘hello’ and let us know how you are doing during the COVID-19 outbreak. We will be online via Zoom each Friday from 10:30-11:30 am. Starting FRIDAY, JUNE 5TH

Click the email below to get registered to attend: [email protected] Please note: Due to privacy and confidentiality, we will not be able to address personal client matters during the chat, but will be happy to connect you with a First Link Coordinator or First Link Care Navigator who will be able to support you. 

This is NOT a Support Group, but an opportunity for you to check in with each other.
