Message from Leeza
Life doesn’t always go as planned. The people we love get sick and that is often when we face our biggest moment of truth. My family’s journey with my Mom’s Alzheimer’s Disease allowed me to see how we were called upon to show up in our own lives and grow our courage in ways we never imagined. It’s that way with everyone who faces a health crisis and wonders what they will do and how they will manage.
When our family was lost, frustrated and frightened while caring for my mom, I made a promise to my mom. I told her I would “tell her story and make it count.” Since 2002, I have done that by offering our free programs to family caregivers at Leeza’s Care Connection where I have learned that it takes great strength to know your limits.
We are a place to call home, a rejuvenating oasis, a place to find your sense of calm, where you can develop skills to help you remain grounded, steady and strong. We invite you to join us; to lock arms with your fellow warriors and your own strength of spirit as you take on one of the most meaningful and important roles of all – caregiving for the one you love.
