The Long Island Alzheimer’s and Dementia Center recognizes the responsibility we hold of working with individuals who are vulnerable and/or more susceptible to illness. As always, we believe that open and ongoing communication between our administration, staff and families is critical.
Nassau County has requested that all senior social programs be suspended. We want to assure you that the request was not as a result of any suspected or confirmed cases of illness at the LIAD Center. No employee or program participant has reported being ill. Nonetheless, in an abundance of caution and in the interests of all, we are following the recommendation and taking all precautionary measures by suspending our programs through May 1, 2020.
We are committed to actively monitoring the situation, following recommendations from the CDC, and taking the necessary precautions to assure the upmost safety for our families, staff and community. As always, we are focusing on what we can do productively during this time, and in addition to thoroughly cleaning the LIAD Center facility, our social workers will be communicating with you every step of the way and will be readily available for you to contact with any questions and concerns.
To our supporters, now more than ever we need your help. As a nonprofit, suspending programs was a very difficult decision. In order to resume our services at the level of care we and our families value most, we need to be able to sustain our resources and staff. Any kind donation at this time is genuinely appreciated and would help to ensure our ability to run our programs and supportive services to our community into the future. We are sincerely thankful for your generosity.
Thank you and stay healthy,
