On Tuesday, February 7. 2023, Legislator Bergin received a tour of the Alzheimer ’s Disease Resource Center (ARDC), in Islip Terrace. Lauren (pictured center) and her team provide free programs for patients affected by Alzheimer’s and Dementia, including diagnosed individuals and those who love and care for them. Programs include art therapy, music therapy, equine therapy and counseling services for families who need support.
The tour concluded with a look into their music program. Legislator Bergin was truly inspired by this tour and looks forward to learning more and working with ARDC in the near future.
