Ocean Financial Federal Credit Union supports dementia programs

Ocean Financial Federal Credit Union supports the LIAD Center

Ocean Financial Federal Credit Union shined light on the Long Island Alzheimer's & Dementia Center's hands-on services, day programs and support groups.

Joe Tedesco, President and CEO of Ocean Financial Federal Credit, has a personal connection to the disease, making the partnership all that more meaningful - Tedesco's mother-in-law passed away from Dementia, and his father and step-mother are currently facing this progressive disease.

"Our role in the process along the way is to make [families] as prepared as they can for the unexpected things," said Tedesco. "The more we can support in the financial decisions, the more the Long Island Alzheimer's and Dementia Center can help make good decisions around caring giving and also provide counseling and education."

Thanks to Ocean Financial Federal Credit Union's support and generous donation, the LIAD Center can continue its mission to improve quality of life for diagnosed individuals and caregivers through hands-on services.
