Alzheimer's Day Program
Has someone in your life been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, dementia, Parkinson’s, or another degenerative illness? Sid Jacobson JCC’s Fay J. Lindner Senior Service Center in collaboration with the Herrick’s Community Fund and the Herrick’s School District, is providing Our Space Adult Day Program. (Formerly the Herrick’s Alzheimer’s Day Program).
"Our Space" is a social model of adult day services established in 1987 for Nassau County residents over the age of 60 who are frail and memory impaired. Caregivers are provided with respite, education and support. These programs are made possible with funds from Nassau County Office for the Aging through the New York State Office for the Aging and the US Administration on Aging, Town of North Hempstead, the Herrick’s Community Fund and private donations.
All programs require an assessment to ensure proper placement. The program meets Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 10am to 2pm at the Herricks Community Center, 999 Herricks Road, New Hyde Park. Please call Christine Pizzo, Herricks Site Supervisor, 516-484-1545 ext. 788 for additional information, if you would like to volunteer or to make a donation.
