Each year when February rolls around, we take inventory of the vast amount of LOVE that is shared by all who are a part of our organization.

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.

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.
