Looking to Start the New Year With Generosity?

We put together a supply list that will help support our incredible programs and services, including music player devices, arts & crafting supplies and office supplies. Your kind donation will directly help the LIAD Center continue and expand its services that benefit your community.


Happy Belly - Happy Mind!

Exciting news! As of January 2020, the LIAD Center will provide full lunches to our day program participants. Thanks to our new lunch program, partially funded by Maspeth Federal Savings Bank, caregivers are relieved from preparing lunch meals for their loved one! This critically needed program follows senior nutrition guidelines, and includes vegetables, protein and a carbohydrate. It also includes a cup of 1% milk to ensure our participants get their daily calcium. Lunches are provided completely free to our families Monday through Saturday. We are so appreciative of our donor's support, and especially Cinco de Mayo restaurant for their delicious menu.

New Blog Post: About Vascular Dementia

As the second most common type of dementia, vascular dementia, results in a significant decline in an individual's thinking ability. This condition can cause problems with balance, speech or memory. Vascular dementia can develop following a stroke that blocks arteries in the brain, but strokes do not always cause vascular dementia. Learn more about the symptoms, causes and risk factors of Vascular Dementia in our new blog post.
