It’s time for our annual Women’s Luncheon and Fashion Show! Once again, we will enjoy a fun afternoon celebrating women, while bringing awareness about Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and how it disproportionately affects women.
Through this event, we are hoping to bring awareness of AD and other related forms of dementia. Currently, Alzheimer’s disease is the sixth leading cause of death across all ages in the United States and almost two-thirds of Americans with AD are women. It affects some 5.4 million Americans, 50,000 of them right here on Long Island. At LIAF, we believe it’s crucial for those living with AD, and their caregivers, to experience a meaningful life after diagnosis.
We are proud of our cutting-edge programs and services that provide hands-on, individualized care, tailored to a participant’s stage in the disease process. We have had a very exciting 2017, with several new developments that have helped us reach more families in need. For starters, we moved to our new, centrally-located center in Westbury—a bright, state-of-the-art space with rooms designated for our Social Adult Day programs, caregiver support groups, and entertainment. For participants needing some quiet time, we have our Snoozeland Room, equipped with soothing sensory devices to help them rest. This year, we also launched a Weekend Drop Off program on Saturdays, which includes a caregiver support group one Saturday a month. We now provide extended hours during the week and are a Music & Memory℠ Certified Care organization. LIAF continues to offer caregiver support groups for spouses and adult children, door-to-door transportation in selected areas of North Hempstead, and our invaluable In-Home Respite program.
The need for our programs and services continues to grow. It’s projected that by 2050 the number of people 65 and older diagnosed with Alzheimer’s may nearly triple to 13.8 million. Until there is a cure, LIAF is here, now, to provide much-needed support and comfort to families dealing with this devastating disease.
We encourage you to review the many sponsorship opportunities that are available. Thank you for your support in helping us continue our mission.
