Learn more about:

  • Attitude and how it affects your health
  • Positivity as a life force

Caring for someone with Alzheimer’s disease or another type of dementia can be a long, stressful and intensely emotional journey.

There are many things you can do to ensure everyone feels calm and safe as you are managing day-to-day life.

  • Helpful resources and tips
  • A supportive environment to share concerns
  • Opportunities to ask for advice

Each support group member will receive a Grab & Go Activity Bag compliments of the ADRC and Artis Senior Living of Commack.

A gift will be raffled to one lucky attendee at each meeting.

The Best Anniversary

My husband has aphasia and has lost his ability to speak. It’s very frustrating for him, and it’s a sadness for me too. So imagine my surprise when Artis helped him celebrate our wedding anniversary. When I visited him that day, residents and staff were all gathered around the room, carrying a banner the residents had made—with my husband in the center, holding a bouquet of flowers and a card for me! They even helped him sign his name on the card—something he hadn’t been able to do in years! In a way, it was one of our best anniversary celebrations. Thank you Artis, from the bottom of my heart.
