Alzheimer’s Association to Host Riverhead Conference

The Alzheimer’s Association & Long Island Chapter and East End Committee invite East End residents to take part in an Alzheimer’s Community Forum on Thursday, April 7 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Riverhead Library. This free event marks the chapter’s return to in-person community programs.

At the Community Forum, Long Island residents are invited to ask questions about Alzheimer’s and dementia, learn about caregiving resources, and share ideas about how to improve services in the community.

“The goal of the forum is to discuss the changing needs of people impacted by Alzheimer’s disease,” said Kate Anastasia, MPA, program director for the Alzheimer’s Association, Long Island Chapter. “We want to make sure we’re doing all we can for our community.”

The event, which includes a light dinner for participants, is hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association and East End Committee. Additional partners include Burner Law, Day Haven Adult Day Services, Family and Children’s Association, Family Service League, Parker Jewish Institute for Health Care and Rehabilitation, and Stony Brook Center for Excellence in Alzheimer’s.

 “We are proud to partner with so many organizations in the East End who share our commitment to helping families impacted by Alzheimer’s and dementia,” says Douglas Davidson, executive director of the Alzheimer’s Association, Long Island Chapter.
