About the LIAD Center

Our Mission and History

The mission of Long Island Alzheimer's and Dementia Center is to help improve the quality of life for individuals living with Alzheimer’s disease and related memory disorders, and their caregivers.

The Long Island Alzheimer’s & Dementia Center is a grassroots, not-for-profit organization founded in 1988 by five Long Island women. Each of these women had a connection with dementia and wanted to create a place where people can turn to for much needed help and services. The organization initially started as a resource center, providing a comprehensive resource directory of local care facilities and professionals, and a social-model adult day service program. Since then, our services have expanded, and we serve all forms of dementia and are helping at every stage of the disease.

In October 2019, we changed our name to the Long Island Alzheimer’s & Dementia (LIAD) Center to reflect the wide range of programs and services that the center offers to families affected by Alzheimer’s disease and related forms of dementia.

The Long Island Alzheimer’s & Dementia Center is unique in that we are a local, ‘one-stop-shop’ that is able to provide the critically needed programs and services families are seeking during their journey. All of our hands-on programs foster independence, dignity, well-being, and safety. Our programs include our Social Model Day program that is available 6 days a week with transportation, In-Home Respite Care, as well as providing Caregiver Services which include Support Groups, Counseling services, Resource and Referral information and Caregiver Trainings. Until there is a cure, the LIAD Center is the best solution to find respite, help and stimulating activities.
