Welcome To JCA Kensington Club@Home

We help older adults with early-stage memory loss. We provide purposeful and stimulating activities at home plus wonderful ways to regularly maintain social connections.

The social model is designed for individuals who need supervision and activities but not extensive personal care or medical monitoring in their home.

The Kensington Club’s focus on the strengths and abilities of club members. Activities are planned online to create a safe, caring. and supportive atmosphere.

Earlier intervention means a better quality of life. Our program packages provide opportunities for social engagement and support while promoting brain health and stimulation. We offer needed structure in the day.

The Club also offers camaraderie in an environment of acceptance. Club programs draw from individual interests and focus on maximizing skills for those with early-stanp memory loss.

About Us/ History

The Samuel J. Gorlitz Kensington Clubs of JCA are social day clubs designed to meet the needs of adults who are in the early stages of diagnosed memory loss while offering a break for caregivers. Our experienced staff provides support, acceptance and compassion. The Clubs offer socialization with peers and meaningful cognitive and physical activity in comfortable surroundings.

Although the Kensington Clubs typically meet for in-person programs, we now are offering a holistic and engaging virtual program from the comfort of your home. The Clubs are a program of JCA ® – the Jewish Council for the Aging of Greater Washington. They serve people of all faiths and from all walks of life.
