RaDAR is a proud partner with the Alzheimer Society of Saskatchewan, and is pleased to share their news that they have moved programming to a virtual format for the time being. This change has opened up Minds in Motion to rural areas!
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 are online via Zoom each Friday from 10:30-11:30 am. Click this email to get registered to attend: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
