The Welcoming Club is pleased to announce
Long island alzheimer's & dementia center
as the 2022-2023 charity
The mission of Long Island Alzheimer's and Dementia Center is to help improve the quality of life for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and related memory disorders, and their caregivers.
For 30 years, Long Island Alzheimer's and Dementia Center has been providing supportive community-based services to Alzheimer’s families on Long Island. LIAD takes considerable pride in its pioneering role in the development of cutting edge services that foster the independence, dignity, well-being and safety of individuals with Alzheimer’s, thus aiding in the prevention of premature nursing home placement. The center's programs offer help and hope for families grappling with Alzheimer’s disease.
The LIAD Center is a grassroots, not-for-profit organization founded in 1988 by five Long Island women. Each of these women had a connection with dementia and wanted to create a place where people can turn to for much needed help and services. The organization initially started as a resource center, providing a comprehensive resource directory of local care facilities and professionals, and a social-model adult day service program. Since then, our services have expanded and we serve all forms of dementia and are helping at every stage of the disease.
