Hempstead Seal

Supervisor Don Clavin and members of the Hempstead Town Board are partnering with the Alzheimer’s Association, Long Island Chapter, to host a series of seminars focused on dementia education and support services that are available to residents. The Alzheimer’s Association has been helping people live their best possible life in the face of dementia for more than four decades. 

Supervisor Clavin, along with Deputy Supervisor Dorothy Goosby, Councilman Anthony D’Esposito, Councilman Dennis Dunne, Sr., Councilman Thomas Muscarella, Councilman Chris Carini, Councilwoman Melissa Miller, Town Clerk Kate Murray, and Receiver Jeanine Driscoll, will kick off the Alzheimer’s Association free seminar series on Wednesday, September 14th at 11 a.m. at the Bellmore Senior Center. The topic will be “Understanding Alzheimer’s and Dementia,” focusing on teaching the impact of Alzheimer’s and the difference between dementia and Alzheimer’s. 

“So many families across America’s largest township have loved ones who are impacted by Alzheimer’s,” Clavin said. “Along with my colleagues on the Town Board, I thank the Alzheimer’s Association for partnering with the Town of Hempstead to bring awareness to this disease, and provide an outlet to residents, including caregivers, with key resources and information.”

"More than 410,000 New Yorkers are living with Alzheimer's and even more are caring for them. Our partnership with the Town of Hempstead is important because it helps us reach more people in our community who are impacted by this disease,” Kate Anastasia, director of programs at the Alzheimer's Association, Long Island Chapter said. “We invite everyone to attend these programs and use our free care, support, and education services whenever they need them."

The Alzheimer’s Association offers a free 24/7 Helpline at 800-272-3900. Through this free service, specialists and masters’-level clinicians offer confidential support and information to people living with dementia, caregivers, families, and the public. 

The Alzheimer’s Association, in conjunction with the Town of Hempstead and the Department of Senior Enrichment, will be hosting six one-hour programs across the Town of Hempstead. Members of the public can register for these programs by calling the Alzheimer’s Association helpline at 800-272-3900
