JCA to open 3rd Kensington Club

And then there were three! 

The Jewish Council for the Aging(R) Gorlitz Kensington Clubs has a new location. In collaboration with Montgomery County Recreation, JCA will now serve the needs of adults with early stage of diagnosed memory loss as well as provide care partner respite at the Margaret Schweinhaut Senior Center in Silver Spring.

Our social day club will meet on Mondays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. beginning December 3.

The JCA Gorlitz Kensington Club@Margaret Schweinhaut Senior Center, 1000 Forest Glen Road, Silver Spring, MD. 20901, is JCA’s newest club. Since 2008, JCA’s Kensington Clubs have provided camaraderie with peers and meaningful cognitive and physical activity in comfortable and supportive surroundings. Group size is limited to 10. Activities include daily exercise, dance, art and music therapy, discussions, guest speakers, performances and trips.

Members must be able to move independently (or with a cane), eat and use the bathroom independently, be without risk of wandering, acknowledge their diagnosis and take medication with a verbal reminder.
