Older adults with early signs of memory loss can attend The Kensington Day Club

The Kensington Reston is proud to partner with Insight Memory Care Center to host RECONNECTIONS, an engagement program of activities, recreation, peer support and socialization for individuals showing early signs of memory loss.

The Kensington Day Club is exclusively for older adults experiencing mild cognitive impairment or early-stage dementia and is held in-person now through Nov. 12 on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Kensington Reston.

Experienced memory care professionals will lead small-group activities that enable participants to:

  • Maintain their current level of cognitive ability
  • Express themselves through creative endeavors
  • Develop a sense of purpose and belonging
  • Enhance intellectual, emotional and physical well-being by moving the body
  • Improve connection with themselves through reflection
  • Engage with peers safely and with support
  • Learn, adjust and reinforce knowledge and skills with non-judgmental assistance

The Kensington Day Club offers comfort and relief to members and gives caregivers time to recharge.
