Site Visits are a great opportunity to see successful programs in action.
Iona was founded in 1975 by three faith communities in Washington, DC to serve the needs of seniors in the community. Today, Iona supports people from all over the metropolitan area as they experience the challenges and opportunities of aging. We educate, advocate and provide community-based programs and services to help people age well and live well, envisioning a community that celebrates, values, respects and protects the contributions and possibilities of every individual. Presenters from Iona and partner organizations will cover innovations that are improving public policy, providing quality services and offering evidence-based programs. This site visit will include a wellness and arts center, a person-centered education program designed for healthy and active baby boomers focused on successful aging, and the Iona Gallery and Artist in Residence program.
The Easter Seals/Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Inter-Generational Center is a worldwide model of excellence for serving people with disabilities and special needs. By providing medical adult day services and a child development center in a shared site, Easter Seals creates meaningful opportunities for older adults—including those with chronic conditions, cognitive impairments or dementiarelated diagnoses—to engage with and contribute to the development of the next generation through daily intergenerational activities. Refreshments will be provided.
