The Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation is proud to announce the creation of a new program called Forget You Not. The mission of Forget You Not is to build connections between young adults and individuals living with Alzheimer's and other related dementia. By bridging the generational gap, we will create new memories and ensure that this population is not forgotten.
This program was founded by 12 teens from Schreiber's High School in Port Washington, NY. They are hardworking, dedicated, individuals who want to raise awareness while doing their best to provide enjoyment, smiles and connections to those living with this disease. During their visits to assisted living facilities, they will be engaging in many activities such as reading, dancing and playing games.
Forget You Not has started their volunteering at Amber Court! A wonderful day of painting, spreading compassion, love and plenty of smiles to those afflicted with this disease. These young men and women are outstanding individuals and we are so proud to have them as part of our organization!
