Alzheimer's disease is progressive and moves through a series of stages, each which create
more challenges and limitations. Families are encouraged to reach out to us at any time,
and as many times as needed, throughout their loved one's Alzheimer's journey.
An important process we facilitate with families is collaborating on a care plan for
their loved one. The care plan clearly identifies current challenges, solutions and
provides appropriate referrals to necessary service providers. The sessions are both
supportive and educational. We understand how overwhelming and all-encompassing the
role of a caregiver can be. Our people, our knowledge and the resources we trust are
all here to help.
Knowing that you are not alone helps people cope with the stress
and issues associated with caregiving for a person with
Alzheimer's disease. ADRC hosts a series of support groups
across Long Island. Please click below to find a group that

addition, it contains a series of reference books on Alzheimer's
