The Men’s Coffee Talk Support Group offers male identifying care partners the opportunity to meet and share information about their experience of caring for a person with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia.
These meetings offer a supportive and confidential environment in which care partners:
- Meet to discuss common concerns and experiences
- Exchange ideas and strategies (coping and/or care related)
- Enjoy mutual support from others in an informal environment
- Gain knowledge and information regarding the nature and progression of Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, available treatments, and community resources.
All of our support groups are inclusive environments for people of different ethnicities, cultures or persons who identify as part of the 2SLGBTQ+ community.
