Dear Friends,
We regret that we can no longer provide an event calendar on this website.
Creating and maintaining the calendar now requires time and effort that exceeds our capacity as volunteers and caregivers.
This page now contains our Resource Manual which provides links to all of the sources we've used to create the calendar.
Please contact these organizations and register to receive email or text notices about their coming events.

Prepared by the Alzheimer's and Dementia Resource Center of NYC


This manual is designed for Alzheimer's Caregivers. Our goal is to provide you with a list of the resources available in NYC to aid you through the difficult process of caregiving. We assume you already have a medical provider, so we are not listing any medical providers or hospital based medical programs.


In this section are organizations that provide a range of programs and services for both those living with Alzheimer's and other dementias and their caregivers. They are organizations you should contact early as they can help you in several ways. They offer support groups as well as programs, live and by Zoom, for all family members.

Note: Except where noted all of the programs listed in this brochure are free.

A number of NYC museum's run programs for Alzheimer's patients and their caregivers. All of the programs are pretty similar... we look at art, we discuss art, and in some programs, we do art. All of the programs are led by docents trained to work with the cognitively impaired and they are very well done. We have listed the museums with programs in the following section along with their contact information. It is good to get on their mailing list so that you can stay current with their programs.
