Thank you for helping make this year’s event a success!

The Friends of CenterLight Foundation honored Carol Hartmann, Regional Day Health Center Manager, CenterLight Teamcare, for nearly 25 years of work and dedication to caring for individuals with Alzheimer’s Disease at the 2019 Impossible Dreamers Achievement Awards in City Vineyard, NYC. The evening’s focus on Alzheimer’s Disease, which affects about 60% of CenterLight Teamcare participants, culminated on a special keynote speech by Dan Gasby, Co-founder of the B. Smith retail brand, Alzheimer’s advocate and caregiver to his wife, the nationally known lifestyle maven, B. Smith. Photos and highlights from the fundraiser will be posted very soon!

Proceeds from the event will be dedicated towards helping enrich our participants' lives through programs and services designed especially for them.

Your Generosity in Action


CenterLight staff members are committed to caring for participants with Alzheimer’s Disease, and getting involved in efforts to raise funds that will help further research. Alzheimer’s Disease is everywhere around us—it’s in our communities, our centers and in our families. It affects us all. Watch the video above to learn more about our involvement in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s.


new technology at teamcare centers

A fleet of technology devices which include 61 Android Tablets, 14 Apple iPads and 300 sets of headphones, as well as associated protective gear to help keep our investment safe. These devices are being used to assist with cognitive and therapeutic interventions and to support language translation on site. They will also be extremely useful for participant online research, as well as medical and nutritional education, the enjoyment of therapeutic music, and the use of e-mail.

Enhanced Experiences for Our Participants

Friends of CenterLight helped underwrite funding for special events for our participants with the goal of providing enhanced experiences beyond what’s usually provided by Teamcare. One of the goals is to encourage participants who do not regularly attend Teamcare centers to take part and experience the value of socialization and recreation.
