Cochlear Implant ‘Coffee Chat’ Support Group

This is a very active group that meets monthly. Led by Sonja Reid, a CI user herself, attendees participate in lively discussion on all matters related to hearing loss and in particular, cochlear implants. There is a wealth of information shared by all participants.

Anyone is welcome to attend regardless of your hearing status. Individuals considering a cochlear implant and especially new users attend to receive support and information. Seasoned users attend for camaraderie and information sharing.

It is a very casual and welcoming atmosphere with refreshments served in a fully accessible location with free parking. Meetings occur on the 3rd Saturday of every month from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. Meetings are held in the basement meeting area of the Deaf and Hear Alberta building at 63 Cornell Rd. NW.

For more information please email info@chha-calgary.ca to the attention of Sonja Reid.
