Insight Memory Care Center, is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit whose mission is to provide specialized care, support and education for individuals with Alzheimer's disease and other memory impairments, their families, caregivers, and the community through our adult day health and resource center. Serving Northern Virginia since 1984, IMCC offers a spectrum of holistic care, education and support, with a vision of a community where those affected by memory impairments can achieve the highest quality of life. IMCC also provides a safe and therapeutic environment for people in all stages of dementia. A vital part of IMCC is providing a well-rounded therapeutic recreation program that meets the physical, cognitive, social, sensorimotor and spiritual needs of each participant. This is a great opportunity for students to work with a TR department with 4 full time certified recreational therapists (CTRS). Insight offers a variety of programs as well art therapy, music therapy, PT/OT and Speech therapy. Students will gain experience programming for early stage and late stage. Our new center includes three different designated groups to best meet the needs of our participants. Additionally we have designated areas for therapies including a multi-sensory environment room, a physical therapy room, an art therapy room, and a media room. Internships are supervised by graduate level CTRS, undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to apply.
