PLEASE NOTE: Because of our high demand, we offer this group at two different times. However, we ask that members only register for and attend one of the sections. Members of one section cannot attend the other.
Section 1: Meets on Zoom on the first Thursday of each month from 10:00-11:30 AM.
Section 2: Meets on Zoom on the fourth Thursday of each month from 10:00 – 11:30 AM.
Pre-registration required for both groups. Call (202) 895-9448 for more information.
Individuals diagnosed with memory loss due to dementia (such as mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s, or vascular dementia) and their family and friends are all affected by the diagnosis and the changes that come with memory loss, but the experience is different for the diagnosed individual and those who care about them.
Recognizing this, Iona offers two groups that meet simultaneously and provide support, information, and resources specific to each one’s needs. Individuals with memory loss and their care partners meet together for 20 minutes for coffee and conversation, then the group splits into separate support groups – one for individuals with memory loss and one for their care partners.
We strongly recommend that both the individual diagnosed with memory loss and their care partner attend these meetings, but this is not required.
