Long Island Alzheimer’s & Dementia Center
For over 30 years, the Long Island Alzheimer’s & Dementia Center has believed that until there is a cure, we are the best solution to find hope and support. Our mission is to improve the quality of life of those impacted by Alzheimer’s disease and related forms of dementia for both diagnosed individuals and caregivers. We offer hands-on services that provide respite, support and stimulating programs. We meet, assess and customize a plan for your loved one, focusing on abilities, what they can still do, happily and productively, allowing us to bring out the best in every participant.
