    Perhaps some of you are familiar with this. Today we were able to visit the one in San Antonio, TX. It is a wonderful concept, so if any of you are close enough to participate I would recommend it. There are not that many now, though her original hope was to have one in each county! Everything is free, including respite. I knew my DH would not be interested, but when he found out one of the men who was going out the door was a scientist, and another woman with AD spoke 5 languages and taught through the college level he became more interested. The Leeza Care Advocate we met was very good about talking to my DH and treating him with respect. The real reason I hope he would like something like this is for me, of course! I could use a break from time to time, as I'm sure you will agree.
    I am seriously considering going back on Wednesday when he could interact with the other AD people and I could go to the Caregiver session. The only drawback is that we seem to be about 25 miles away with way too much traffic for my comfort level.
    If you want more information and to see where they are located go to

    Thank you so much for that information. Last November, when Sid and I were on a panel at a Caregiver Conference, Bonnie Bonomo, Care Advocate of Leeza’s Place (I don't know which location) was also a presenter.

    She was the last presenter, and we were all tired and were anxious to get home, so I did not stay afterwards when she was meeting and talking with everyone. Now I could kick myself for not meeting with her. I really had no idea of the services Leeza's Place provided until I checked the website you mentioned.

    I would encourage everyone to check out that website.
