Insight Memory Care Center - Fairfax

Programs Offered

Our Fairfax location currently offers all of our programs, including those for individuals in early to late stages of dementia, care partners and family members, as well as offerings for businesses, organizations, and the larger community.

Insight’s adult day health center provides a safe, engaging, and therapeutic environment for individuals with mid to later stage memory impairment. It is the only dementia-specific day center in the DC metro area and still the only adult day health center in Northern Virginia with programs for people in the later stages of dementia. For those in the early stages, Insight offers social engagement programs to maximize capabilities, and provide support for loved ones to adjust to changing family dynamics. Additionally, our innovative education and support programs provide caregiver classes, community trainings, professional seminars, support groups, and individual consultations. These programs help family members remain confident and effective in their caregiving roles and increase awareness and understanding of the disease in the community.

Programs offered at this location include:

About the Fairfax Center

Want to see more before you come by? On January 12, 2015, we opened the doors at our state-of-the-art 15,000 square foot facility in Fairfax, expanding the capacity of all of our programs and services from our previous location in Merrifield. We almost tripled our square footage, and now have capacity for up to 60 day center participants per day. There are three sizable activity rooms for our Blue, Orange, and Coral groups, along with dedicated spaces for art therapy, a multi-sensory environment, and other small group activities. The center was designed for those living with dementia in mind, including a circular walking path through the space and specialty colors and cuing throughout the center. Additionally, we have outdoor space that wraps around the building, allowing another option for activities or an outdoor meal during nicer weather. The Mazawey Education and Support Center is right next door and provides additional space for our early-stage programs and care partner education and support.
