Tremendous services offered including support groups. And all money raised stays on Long Island to help Long Island families. – Frank
The Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center is a lifeline. Working in the geriatric field, it is not uncommon to come across the misunderstanding of dementia amongst other challenging situations. I work for a home care agency and I always connect our families to ADRC that are coping with this disease. Their team goes the extra mile to educate, advocate, and support families every step of the way (LITERALLY, every step!). I highly recommend them to any family struggling with the side effects that dementia has on an individual and their loved ones.
Our company has been affiliated with the ADRC since 2004, and we find it to be the most valuable resource for all those involved in the realm of Alzheimer’s Disease. For patients and their families, the ADRC offers counseling, support groups, resources, and real world answers. For caregivers and Home Care agencies, they offer direction, education, training and support. There is no other organization on Long Island that offers so much to the Alzheimer’s community.
There is no amount that can express how amazing this place is. The people who work here are so supportive and go above and beyond to help out those in need of resources and support. I personally have referred close friends and family to ADRC, as well as families from my line of work in the field of Social Work. This place has been a life saver for so many.
ADRC is a lifeline for loved ones trying to deal with a family member or friend suffering from Alzheimer’s or another form of Dementia. This organization has been caring for families for over 20 years. The number of people diagnosed together with the accompanying need for advice and resources has grown, exponentially. No one gets turned away from the ADRC. The Executive Director and her staff, always go above and beyond to offer assistance, education or a shoulder. If they can’t help you, they will refer you to someone who can. The Executive Director helped me many years ago, when I was in denial over my mother’s eroding memory. As we all know, the course of the disease is predictable. There is no one better-suited to help a family navigate this difficult course.
These have been trying times for all of us and certainly those of us dealing with Alzheimer’s. While Jay has certainly deteriorated over the past year the virtual programs offered by ADRC have kept him going. He absolutely loves the music hours and the monthly craft program with Michele Payne and the Parrish Museum art appreciation sessions. He also enjoys participating in the student sessions for Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy in conjunction with Stony Brook University, Touro and Suffolk Community Colleges. Please accept this contribution that we would like to go toward support of the above mentioned programs. We appreciate all that is being done to keep us engaged, connected and stimulated. Thank you
