Coffee Clatch for Care Partners

A chance to connect

We launched this program especially for the care partners of people living with dementia to provide a chance to connect with other care partners and discuss your journey with dementia outside the confines of a formal support group.

What is a Coffee Clatch?

The term “coffee klatch” comes from the German word, “kaffeeklatsch,” which translates to coffee (kaffee) + gossip (klatsch). It refers to a group of friends getting together over a cup of coffee, usually at someone’s house – or in our case, virtually! The word “klatsch” has turned into “klatch” or even “clatch” over the years, and both are considered acceptable to use.

What People Are Saying

  • I want to thank you for your insights and your compassion in moderating the Coffee Clatch for Care Partners. You create a comfortable and safe space for us to talk about very personal and emotional feelings, which is a great relief in this "situation" that we find ourselves in. I feel free to express myself with people who I hardly know and yet feel connected to almost immediately. There is certainly something to be said about the power of the shared experience.

  • Thank you for these reminders of the benefits of laughter. Life can be so serious at times, that we forget to look for the positives and the laughable moments. I greatly appreciated our virtual time together on Friday. It is good to connect with other caregivers, share our struggles and joys and offer support and celebrate the joys.

    –– Pam N., Care Partner
