Insight Memory Care Center’s 35th Celebration!
Insight Memory Care CenterWednesday, June 5 from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
At: Insight Memory Care Center
3953 Pender Drive, Suite 100, Fairfax, VA 22030
Do you remember where you were in 1984? Did it involve a lot of big hair and shoulder pads? Or maybe we’d find you at the roller rink or the arcade?
Insight was just starting in 1984. You could find us in a church basement, offering respite services for families living with memory impairment. Caregivers came for support group, and we quickly added five days a week of respite care. Lin Simon, our founder, was motivated by her passion, knowledge, and supportive friends and community. She didn’t turn anyone away that came for assistance.
Now in 2019 we’re celebrating 35 years of care and support! No longer in the basement, we’ve been through several moves as we’ve expanded our space and services to serve more in need. We now open our doors to thousands of caregivers and families each year!
We hope you’ll join us to celebrate! We’ll take a look back at where we’ve been, and look forward to an exciting future providing care, education, and support for families living with dementia in our community. Click here to RSVP.
