Long Island Alzheimer’s Foundation
January 01, 2010
LIAF began in 1988 in typical grass-roots fashion. Five women, each of whom had a parent or grandparent with Alzheimer’s disease, were sharing their frustration of not knowing where to turn for much-needed help. Their solution was to do it themselves. Their initial efforts included an information hotline, the region’s first comprehensive resource directory, and a day services program for adults in a rented community center room.
Today, LIAF is recognized as the region’s premier information source and service provider for individuals with Alzheimer’s and their families. Farrell Fritz has been proud to play a hand in its growth, led by Thomas Killeen, who has been heavily involved with LIAF for many years and currently serves as its Vice Chair. He has been joined by Christopher Daly, Arthur Feldman, Eric Kramer and Louis Vlahos. Under our pro bono program, Farrell Fritz has assisted LIAF with a full spectrum of legal issues, including tax, tax certiorari, real estate, corporate governance, insurance, litigation and employment.
