Family First has recently partnered up with the Alzheimer’s Disease Resource Center for the month of May. The timing could not be more perfect for a collaboration of this caliber! May is National Older Americans Month and we are speaking to ADRC’s Caregiver support groups on ways to stay empowered as they care for their loved ones living with dementia. Founded in 1983, ADRC is a non-profit organization dedicated to family service, education and research. ADRC currently advocates for over 60,000 individuals living on Long Island who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. We are thrilled to be working side by side of an agency that is dedicated to the population that we care for and serve 365 days a year. To learn more about ADRC’s services, call 631-580-5100 and ask for Joan Motley.
