Listed below are a few of our upcoming events. Please take a look at our Event Calendar for a full listing!
We're making the Memory Cafe virtual. Log on and join us!
The café is an opportunity for you and your loved one to meet with others for support, companionship, and fun! The program will provide activities that you can participate in with your loved one at home to promote reminiscence, cognition, and engagement. There will be opportunity to share conversation and get to know others in a safe, supportive environment.
Mind & Body Workshop: "Finding Your Balance" Session
Join us for a new session of the Mind and Body Workshop, from April 14 to May 5! The workshop is a multi-session program series for both the caregiver and the recently diagnosed individual to participate, promoting social engagement and peer support, while adjusting to life with a new diagnosis.
The workshop utilizes different topics to promote cognitive enhancement, creative expression, movement, community engagement, and overall well-being while living with memory loss.
Finding Your Balance Session
The Spring 2020 session will focus on “finding your balance.” Insight is currently partnering with Marymount University on a balance exercise program designed for older adults and modified for individuals with dementia. During each workshop session, Julie D. Reis, PhD, PT, will help us practice this balance program together and give caregivers tips on implementing the program at home with their loved one.
Peer support activities and caregiver support discussions during the four weeks will focus on finding balance in everyday life, including healthy living, positive relationships, and thinking creatively. Join us as we “find our balance” together!
Registration is required; there is a short application and assessment process for the program to ensure a good fit for both the caregiver and early stage participant.
Parkinson Social Network
The Parkinson Social Network was inspired by the Memory Café concept – a social gathering in a safe and supportive environment for people living with memory loss as well as their friends and family.
There are several Parkinson Social Network meetings throughout Northern Virginia that provide relaxed and supportive environments for people living with Parkinsons, as well as other related movement disorders such as Lewy Body Dementia, together with their friends and family. At the meeting, you’ll have the opportunity to relax and chat with old friends, and meet new ones. Enjoy a cup of coffee and delicious food – you’re welcome to bring some munchies to share!
The Parkinson Social Network Fairfax meets monthly at Insight on the third Wednesday of the month. There is a different theme each month, largely touching on topics that affect our lives in ways other than as a patient or caregiver.
The Memory Café will be offered on the first and third Wednesday of each month from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. Join us!
The café is an opportunity for you and your loved one to meet with others for support, companionship, and fun! The program will provide structured activities that you can participate in with your loved one to promote reminiscence, cognition, and engagement. Caregivers also have the option of participating in a caregiver support group. A light dinner will be served towards the end of the program to provide opportunity to share conversation and get to know others in a safe, supportive environment.
