How We Help

At Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation (LIAF), we strive to help improve the quality of life for families facing challenges associated with Alzheimer's disease, dementia, and memory related conditions. We work hands-on with patients in:

  • Early stage Alzheimer's
  • Moderate stage Alzheimer's
  • Late stage Alzheimer's

We utilize this comprehensive approach to all three stages of Alzheimer's to help prolong your loved one's abilities, maintain their independence, and find new fulfillment in life. Our services offer help and hope for families, while working to aid in the prevention of premature nursing home placement.

We're proud to serve families throughout the Queens County, Nassau County, and Long Island area. Each day we are driven by the mission to improve the quality of life for individuals living with Alzheimer's disease and related memory disorders and improve the life of their caregivers.

We strategically achieve our mission through:

  • Education,
  • Research-based programming for those living with Alzheimer's disease,
  • Caregiver support groups,
  • In-home respite programs,
  • Transportation assistance,
  • Music therapy, and
  • Guidance throughout the Alzheimer's disease.

Understanding the Different Stages of Alzheimer's Disease

We provide guidance, resources, support, and different programs for those with Alzheimer's disease ranging from pre-diagnosis through end-of-life. While other organizations only provide solutions for one or two stages, we provide services for the individual and their caregiver throughout all stages of the disease.

Our approach is unique, but we've discovered our heightened quality of care is especially beneficial for both those with Alzheimer’s and their caregivers. Alzheimer’s disease can be categorized by three separate stages: early stage, moderate stage, and late stage

Programs for Your Loved One with Alzheimer's

Whether your loved one has early stage, moderate stage, or late stage Alzheimer's, the Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation offers an innovative program in a supportive and welcoming environment. Each program provides structured socialization and activities to stimulate their mind appropriate to your loved one's stage in the disease.

All of our programs are research based and designed around your loved one's abilities. We work to create opportunities for them to experience activities and the types of  events they can still find pleasure and joy in. While your loved one participates in a day program, you'll have much-needed time to yourself. Clink the links below to learn more about each day program:

In-Home Caregiver Respite Programs

Every other week, we offer two hours of in-home respite care for families in Nassau County. Our highly-trained respite specialists are trained to engaged your loved one through stimulating cognitive activities based on their stage.
