Located in Port Washington, LIAF was founded in 1988 in the typical grassroots fashion by five Long Island women. Each of these women had a parent or grandparent with Alzheimer’s disease and shared the frustration of not knowing where to turn for much-needed help.
LIAF has been providing supportive community-based services to Alzheimer’s families in Queens, Nassau, and Suffolk Counties. LIAF takes considerable pride in its pioneering role in the development of cutting edge services that foster the independence, dignity, well-being and safety of individuals with Alzheimer’s, thus aiding in the prevention of premature nursing home placement.
LIAF’s programs offer help and hope for families grappling with Alzheimer’s disease. By taking advantage of the myriad of programs and services LIAF offers, individuals with Alzheimer’s and caregivers alike have learned that they are not alone and there is help available through LIAF.
