We Need Your Support!
As the rate of Alzheimer’s disease and other memory impairments rises, the demand for our programs and services is continually and dramatically increasing. We believe everyone should be treated with respect, compassion and dignity, and we want everyone in Northern Virginia with a life-changing dementia diagnosis to experience a high level of care.
Approximately 50 percent of our costs are covered through program fees. The remaining support comes from public and private funding. As a nonprofit organization we rely heavily on community support, specifically Fairfax County funding and donors to maintain IMCC’s affordable program fees (including many free programs and services), provide assistance to those unable to afford our fees (approximately $150,000 in scholarships per year), and improve and expand our programs and services. We need your support to continue to provide these services and to meet the growing need.
As one of our family members shared, “The fact that this center has been taking such wonderful care of my mother, I am able to take care of my own needs at work, events, etc.” IMCC provides care to support the whole family affected by memory impairment: enriching the life of the individual affected through specialized therapeutic care; engaging the family through support groups, education, and consultations; and educating the community to improve the understanding of memory impairment.
IMCC is where we are today because of the generous support of the community. Just as our founder Lin Noyes Simon reached out to her friends and neighbors, IMCC continues to reach out to the community for support from people like you. There are three simple ways to support IMCC:
You can be a part of our work, it’s as simple as signing up for our newsletter, passing along information about an education program, or donating to support the expert care, education and support IMCC provides to hundreds of families each year. By taking action, you will help IMCC reach its vision to see a community where those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and other memory impairments can achieve the highest quality of life.
