The Stony Brook Center of Excellence for Alzheimer's Disease

The Stony Brook Center of Excellence for Alzheimer's Disease is a program of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health, a part of Stony Brook University Neurosciences Institute.  It is one of 10 centers in New York State, based in a large hospital setting and funded in part by the New York State Department of Health.

The Center was founded in 1988 to serve as an Alzheimer’s Disease Assistance Center (ADAC).  In 2016 Stony Brook applied for and received a grant to become a Center of Excellence for Alzheimer’s Disease. We offer a comprehensive list of services as well as hold affiliation with other experts in the field across Long Island.


Dear Patients, Families and community partners,

In the midst of this COVID-19 pandemic, The Stony Brook Center of Excellence for Alzheimer’s Disease Program remains up and running and ready to deliver services and resources to individuals with dementia and their families.

Stay safe,
