Honoring Our Heroes

Every person plays an important role in helping to overcome and survive the COVID-19 outbreak. At the LIAD Center, we acknowledge and support the unnoticed heroes, caregivers. Caregivers are on a unique front line, 24/7, without a break in sight. Every day they face unfamiliar challenges, with limited resources, from social stimulation to food and supplies, and are struggling to maintain the health and well-being of both themselves and their loved ones. The LIAD Center's hands-on services provide necessary relief and comfort, and for that, they have expressed their gratitude:

"


Having been blessed with the services of the LIAD Center through the years, they are certainly going above and beyond for myself and many others during these trying times… their continued support is just a testament of what the organization is truly about.


"


I'm SO happy to be a part of the LIAD Center, before, now and always!


"


The Long Island Alzheimers and Dementia Center has been my lifeline for several years now since my husband’s Alzheimer's and vascular dementia diagnosis, but never more than now.


"


Thanks to the LIAD Center we are keeping busy several times a day staying connected with the great online programs they have.


"


The LIAD Center provides Facebook videos with the social workers and program assistants who always make my husband smile. The staff calls us to check in, make offers of assistance or even food if we should need it. They make calls so my husband could see a familiar face, since he can’t always recognize a voice on the phone.


"


Along with everyone else, we are social distancing. The isolation and break in routine that we are all living with as a result of Covid-19, is especially challenging for a person with dementia. The LIAD Center is closed, but continues to make us feel connected. 


"


The virtual programming provided by LIAD has been a major help during this unprecedented time. Whenever my Dad sees the instructors on Facebook Live he immediately lights up. As a working caregiver the virtual sessions has given me a few moments throughout the day when I know my Dad is entertained and I can take care of critical activities for my job.


"


LIAD Center has been a life saver for us at this most difficult time. The 3x/day programs they do on Facebook have been amazing. Especially seeing familiar faces from the LIAD Center gives my husband a smile, occasional laugh and something to focus on.


"


[As a caregiver,] I look forward to the the telephonic support groups and Friday morning Zoom Caregiver yoga classes.


"


LIAD Center is a special place where we all feel cared for and supported, and not alone, which has never meant more than in these uncertain times.


"


The stay at home mandate has made the value of the social day program at LIAD Center very clear to me. I have seen a significant deterioration in my husband’s wellbeing since he has been unable to attend the program at the LIAD Center.


"


I attend the weekly phone support group - hearing the voices and stories from everyone has been a great support for me, something to look forward to.
