We're so happy that you're interested in having a loved one attend our day center. We try to keep the application process as straightforward as possible; there are just 4 steps to get started!
If you have any questions about the application process, or would like to set-up a tour of the center before applying, please contact our Director of Community Engagement, Jennifer Denk. We strongly encourage you to take a look at our center in person, or through our virtual tour!
The first step in the Application process is to complete the Application Form. Please ensure you complete all items and submit the application fee. Completed forms can be returned to us by: Email: Stephanie Houpt, Program Director, email@example.com; Fax: 703-204-0507; or Mail: 3953 Pender Drive, Suite 100, Fairfax, VA 22030.
Once the application and fee is submitted, we will schedule and intake assessment. This meeting will include one of our Social Workers, Nurse, and Program Director, along with yourself, your potential participant, and any other interested family members. During the assessment, your loved one will attend our programming with staff supervision to help determine their appropriate level of care. You and your family will complete the enrollment paperwork, and help us get to know your loved one better. A typical assessment will take an hour to an hour and a half. At this time, you can also work with our Program Director to schedule transportation, if needed, and/or meet with our nurse to discuss any medication or dietary issues that need to be addressed.
3. Physical and TB Screening
Prior to your loved one attending the day center, a physical and TB screening must be completed by a doctor on Insight’s forms. Per our licensing requirements, these forms must be signed and dated within 30 days prior to your loved one’s start date. Consult with Insight staff to determine availability for your preferred days of attendance, and schedule an appointment with your doctor, or ask about scheduling an appointment with a physician Insight has a relationship with, for an additional fee. Our nurses will help pre-fill a physical form for you to ensure it meets our licensing standards prior to your appointment.
4. Pick a Start Date!
Once the physical paperwork is completed and submitted, it’s time to join us! Your loved one is ready to have fun with us at the day center!
