Insight Memory Care Center
We are a nonprofit adult day health and resource center providing specialized care, support, and education for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory impairments, their families, caregivers, and the community. Serving Northern Virginia since 1984, IMCC offers a spectrum of holistic care, with a vision of a community where those affected by memory impairments can achieve the highest quality of life.
Social connection is a cornerstone of the programs we offer at Insight. Whether it is plugging those who have dementia into the right recreation program, or covering the much need education topic for a caregiver, our main job here at Insight is to connect. We work to connect people to the right support systems and programs that allow them to live fulfilling, meaningful lives while simultaneously battling a dementia diagnosis. One of our programs that truly connects people is our Memory Café.
Earlier this month we have been able to begin a slow, phased re-opening of our center. We never would have foreseen being so excited about having only 8 participants in our Day Center per day - but here we are, and we’re grateful! We are deliberately taking our re-opening slow, planning out each step, and being sure to vet everything with experts on our board as well as local and state authorities.
Insight Memory Care Center offers free, confidential memory screenings and educational materials to people with concerns about their memory or who want to check their memory now for future comparison. The best part – memory screenings are now being held virtually, so you can perform this simple evaluation from the comfort of home! So who would benefit from a memory screening?
I am excited to share that we have recently started our newest program, Insight at Home, a virtual activity program to reach families outside our center walls. Insight at Home is a virtual group designed to encourage engagement and foster meaningful relationships with other members, completely outside of participation in our Day Center. Participants meet twice a week for virtual activities and discussion groups, and are provided programs to work on at home.
