Melissa Katz, LCSW Director of Caregiver Services and Grant Management
 

Melissa Katz, a New Jersey native, fell in love with Long Island during her Master’s in Social Work studies, and found a home at Long Island Alzheimer's & Dementia Center in November 2014. After running the Early Stage Program for four years, Melissa is now facilitating caregiver support groups and implementing new programs for the LIAD Center’s family caregivers. Additionally, Melissa runs the In-Home Respite Program, helping to give caregivers a break when it comes to taking care of their loved ones. Melissa’s long-time passion for working with families, conducting research and improving health equity in New York has led to her new role as Director of Caregiver Services and Grant Management. When not at the LIAD Center, Melissa can be found doing endless work on her new home with her husband and French Bulldog, Harvey.
