Care, support and education for those with memory and cognitive impairments and their care partners Insight Memory Care Center (IMCC), formerly Alzheimer's Family Day Center, is a nonprofit adult day health and resource center providing specialized care, support, and education for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other memory impairments, their families, caregivers, and the community.
Join us in giving thanks for our Memory Cafe in Fairfax on November 16th! We'll be discussing family celebrations, traditions, and special foods, and will decorate plaques to bring home!
Memory Cafes at Insight Memory cafés are offered in Fairfax and Sterling for families to come together in a safe, supportive environment, share conversation over a cup of coffee, and participate in fun, simple activities.
As busy care partners, it’s hard to find time to focus on your own health and well-being - especially when you’re navigating your caregiver journey. Join us on the second and fourth Thursday of each month as we make time for ourselves!

SAGE Table events bring together people of all ages to share a meal and conversation. The transformative relationships formed around a SAGE Table can alleviate social isolation and its consequences.
Your co-hosts, AGING RAINBOWS, Retirement Unlimited, and Insight Memory Care Center hope that members of the LGBTQ+ community and allies will attend. This is a potluck event, but those who cannot bring an item should not hesitate to attend as there is always plenty for all to share. The only item we really care about you bringing is yourself!
