The Willing Hearts, Helpful Hands Program, a free community service of the Parker Jewish Institute, provides free assistance to caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias living in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. We are excited to be offering this program because we know that that many family caregivers are at the breaking point and need support to carry on. Whether you are a friend or a family member, caring for an older adult can be a challenge. The Willing Hearts, Helpful Hands program is dedicated to easing the many burdens associated with being a caregiver of an older adult with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia.
