Coffee & Conversation
Coffee & Conversation is a support group offered by Nova Scotia Health and the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia for persons living with early-stage dementia.
The benefits to group participants include reducing loneliness and isolation, exchanging tips and strategies, normalizing feelings and gaining hope. It is also a space to access current information from the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia.
Coffee & Conversation is offered for persons living with early-stage dementia who have attended the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia program Shaping the Journey. The group is most effective when participants can recognize their cognitive symptoms of dementia and have an interest in discussing their experiences with others with similar diagnoses.
