---Welcome-----

   ElderCare Online and the Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation are working together to create an interactive resource center to help teens who are coping with Alzheimer's Disease in their family. Our mission is to provide you with information, education and support in a safe and constructive forum to help them handle the daily challenges of living with a parent or other relative with the disease.
   This site is dedicated to the thousands of everyday heroes aged 13-19. We are respectful of their privacy and rights to self-expression, so we are restricting access to the interactive funtions to teens and community leaders only. We will be very careful to monitor for dangerous situations, but we have to trust you to make mature and responsible decisions.
   The interactive functions included on this site are available to all teens coping with Alzheimer's Disease. While you will basically "run the show," we do have community leaders who are trained in counseling, Alzheimer's Disease care management and community support to help things along.
