Alzheimer's Day Program

  • The Herricks Alzheimer's Day Program, also known as "Our Space" takes place in the Herricks Community Center and is made possible by funding in part from the Nassau County Office for the Aging through the New York State Office for the Aging and the U.S. Administration on Aging, Town of North Hempstead, the Herricks Community Fund and private donations.

    "Our Space" is a social model of adult day services established in 1987 for Nassau County residents over the age of 60 with a diagnosis of early to moderate dementia. While the impaired senior is socializing and enjoying recreational activites, their loved one can enjoy and benefit from the respite. In addition, caregiver support groups are offered during the year.

    The program meets Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10am to 3pm at the Herricks Community Center, 999 Herricks Road, New Hyde Park. Please call the Director Patricia J. Foley, at 516-742-0851 for additional information, if you would like to volunteer or to make a donation.
