Coffee-Gatherings for Partners


Who do these groups concern? These groups are for the partner of a person suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or from another major neurocognitive disorder.

These coffee-gatherings allow people living similar situations to share their experiences and help each other.

Why join a support group?

  • To acquire practical knowledge, learn strategies to integrate into daily life and plan for the future.
  • To join a reassuring environment where you can share your experiences without fear.
  • To understand that you are not alone, because others face the same challenges.
  • To join the Alzheimer’s Society Rive-Sud and a network of resources.
