Jewish Council for the Aging of Greater Washington
The Kensington Club provides a great place for older adults with early stage memory loss to find camaraderie and coping skills. It also offers respite to caregivers, who know that when their loved one is at Kensington Club, they will have a much needed break.
Caregiver support is also available through Early Stage Dementia Education and Support Groups. With training from the Alzheimer’s Association, facilitators lead a unique model of information and support to individuals with a diagnosis and their care partners. With a goal of enhancing the lives of individuals with dementia and their families, the eight-week sessions cover topics such as understanding the disease and how to find community resources. Each week, education is provided for the whole group, followed by separate support groups for care partners and those with a diagnosis.
