The Association operates through volunteers whose primary concern is to provide support and information to people with Sjogren’s syndrome and their loved ones.
Research has shown that people receiving support from a social network do better and feel more in control than those who are isolated. People who have been diagnosed with Sjögren’s Syndrome must learn to live with a chronic illness with the additional challenge of having a rare disease that most people have never heard of. Because of the rarity of the disease, it is sometimes difficult to find people who understand the pitfalls that a person with Sjögren’s syndrome encounters on a daily basis.
Want to know more about Sjögren’s syndrome? Do you feel isolated? Join the self-help group in Montreal or Quebec City: in addition to a warm welcome, we offer meetings with relevant content. Do not hesitate to contact us.
Conduct of the meeting
The meeting begins with a tour de table so that each person can express himself if he wishes. The proposed theme can affect treatment or pain management as much as the social aspects often associated with Sjogren’s syndrome.
For more details, you can join a Sjögren Syndrome Association volunteer who will be happy to inform you:
