The Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation (LIAF) is a non-profit, Port Washington-based organization offering a variety of programs and services for individuals and families affected by Alzheimer's disease and related cognitive and memory disorders. The organization is dedicated to providing stimulating programming for the diagnosed individual, as well as respite and support for family caregivers. Among the organization's number of hands-on programs and services are, early-stage socialization and mental stimulation programs, spousal and adult children caregiver support groups, social model adult day programming and in-home respite. LIAF is one of the few organizations that provide a variety of distinct programs based on the cognitive level of each individual, so that participants are able to socialize with others whose cognitive and skill levels are most similar to theirs. LIAF also offers a Brain Fitness program of cognitive training classes for those who do not have a diagnosed memory disorder, but wish to be proactive about their brain health. For added convenience, additional services are available on-site including, pain management, massage and physical therapy. Transportation to LIAF programs is available in parts of the Town of North Hempstead and northeastern Queens. Education and awareness events, included conferences, workshops and open houses are offered several times a year.
