Coffee and Chat 

For people with dementia and their care partners. This is NOT a Support Group, but an opportunity for you to check in with each other. 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.  

We will be online via Zoom every Friday (except holidays) - 10:30-11:30 am. Click the following email to register 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 Client Services Team Manager who will be able to support you.  
 

Support Groups

The Alzheimer Society offers support groups for people with dementia and caregivers that can improve quality of life and the ability to cope with the challenges of the disease.

Maintaining a Healthy and Safe Program Environment  

If you are unwell and have symptoms including, but not limited to, coughing, sneezing, runny nose, sore throat and/or headache, please refrain from attending Alzheimer Society programs or events to reduce the spread of illness.   

If you or a member of your household has a contagious disease, has tested positive for COVID-19, or you suspect you may have COVID-19, please do not attend Alzheimer Society programs or events. If your program takes place over multiple sessions, you may return to the program after 24 hours without symptoms, unless you tested positive for COVID-19 (then follow current Saskatchewan health self-isolation guidelines).
