ADRC wants to ensure that as many people are aware of the signs of early cognitive decline. Alzheimer’s is a neurodegenerative disorder that gets progressively worse over time. Early diagnosis can maintain cognitive and physiological functions as long as possible.
That’s why our staff is available and ready to visit community organizations across Long Island. We are spreading information, resources, and referrals by speaking to community service groups, visiting libraries and schools and sharing information through both formal and informal channels.
Our presentations help organizations better understand Alzheimer’s disease and the facts and myths surrounding it. We identify key differences between dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, highlight early warning signs and cover legal and financial issues. Most importantly, ADRC provides comprehensive information on the many resources available to help Long Island families coping with Alzheimer’s disease.
