Encore Creativity for Older Adults, the nation’s largest choral program for singers 55+, is pleased to introduce a chorus for those diagnosed with early or beginning moderate Alzheimer’s and other memory impairments. “Sentimental Journey Singers” rehearses from 9:30 to 11am at Insight Memory Care Center at 3953 Pender Drive, Suite 100, Fairfax, VA.

Encore is proud to be partnering with Insight Memory Care Center to bring this excellent choral program to those diagnosed with early or moderate dementia. Insight 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, care partners and the community.  

For those in early stages, Insight offers social engagement programs to maximize capabilities, and provide support for loved ones to adjust to changing family dynamics. Insight is the only dementia-specific day center in the DC metro area and still the only adult day health center in Northern Virginia with programs for people in the later stages of dementia. Their innovative education and support programs provide caregiver classes, community trainings, professional seminars, support groups and individual consultations.
