How You Can Help - Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation

How You Can Help

For 30 years, the Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation (LIAF) has been working to improve the quality of life for those living with Alzheimer’s disease and their families. We take a pioneering approach in the development of cutting-edge services to foster the independence, well-being, dignity, and safety of those with Alzheimer’s to help prevent premature nursing home placement.  

Simply put, we’re here for families every step along the way. We combine a supportive and welcoming environment with state-of-the-art Alzheimer’s disease programs, in-home respite with cognitive activities, Caregiver Support Groups, and an array of educational workshops to make a difference — one person, one family, one community at a time. And we’re looking to continue to advance our mission with your continued support.

How Can You Make an Impact?

Regardless of how large or how small, your continued support makes a huge difference. At LIAF, you can get involved in multiple ways. We accept and greatly appreciate your donations, time, and efforts to make a difference throughout Long Island, Nassau County, and Queens County.

The Growing Need for Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation  Services

Frequently referred to as the 'hidden epidemic,' Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of deaths in the nation. Our services and cutting-edge solutions are in demand by countless families living in the Long Island, Nassau County, and Queens County area.

  • Every 68 seconds someone in the United States is stricken with Alzheimer’s disease.
  • This disease strikes one out of every eight Americans 65 years of age or older (growing to nearly 50% of the population 85 years and older).
  • Alzheimer’s disease afflicts some 5.5 million Americans, including more than 50,000 in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Its prevalence is expected to reach 7.7 million by 2030 and 16 million by 2050.
  • Nearly 7 out of every 10 individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in the United States reside in the community with their families, not in institutions. Eighty percent of all care provided to Alzheimer’s individuals is tendered by family and friends.
