Want a day facility that would allow my husband to have meaningful interaction w/others who may have early dementia or impairment. I sub occasionally and would appreciate having a place for him to be gainfully occupied rather than home alone.

I went to our local Senior Center and they gave me all kinds of helpful information. They had pamphlets for the Center of Aging and the Alzheimer's Association local chapters. If you use a computer, there is a lot there too of course.

MzStella, if you come, here are a few tips:

1. Wear good, sturdy, comfortable walking shoes.

2. Bring one of those little luggage carriers on wheels, that you can pull behind you, to put all the literature and (lots and lots of) goodies in.

First few times I ended up so with much literature that I wanted to read over I was carrying it in 2 -3 bags and literally dragging it because it became so heavy. Exhibitors generally have a lot of literature to hand out.

BTW, I use the cloth bags available for free from exhibitors for grocery bags; they serve that purpose well.

Don't forget to get the free bagels in the center section as you enter the large exhibitors' room.
