Alzheimer's Support Book Making Currently I am offering a class that supports the family members of someone with dementia. Not so much about my book, but rather creating a book of family memorabilia that is used as a communication aide. You will be creating a tool for communication using your own family photos. This inability to communicate keeps folks from visiting their loved ones, and that creates a sadder world.
The class teaches through conversation, ways to talk, best ways to walk, how to connect with the staff in a facility, and of course, how to put together a life-book. It takes all day, includes lunch and I have connections with local bed and breakfast facilities close by in case of need. It's a retreat with a love-purpose. ___ Details click here. This class is tailored to the group/family/individual's needs. I can be as quick 4 hours or as long as two days. Please contact me 619-607-0511 or email (below) and we can discuss needs and pricing.

It's not cute. Its a working artist's studio on loan to you for a few hours. Utilitarian, toilet and great library (no not in the same spot!). The chairs are miss matched and comfy. Views of the Palomar Mountain Range and Beauty Mountain. Close to mom and pop sized vineyards (not to diminish their amazing wine, but to describe their size and friendly casual feel). Snakes, spiders and mountain lions are here.
