Alzheimer's Family Day Center (AFDC) is a not-for-profit organization providing a wide range of services to people with Alzheimer's disease and their families. Serving the local community since 1984, AFDC offers a safe, uplifting, and engaging environment for people with dementia and is a practical resource for caregivers.
AFDC is the only dementia-specific adult day center in the Washington metropolitan area. It is the first and still the only center in Northern Virginia with programs for people in the later stages of an Alzheimer's illness.
The effects and progression of Alzheimer's disease vary with each individual. Because of this, Alzheimer's Family Day Center offers participants programs that address the specific needs of people in the early, middle, and late stages of the disease. These programs all have a common goal: to provide opportunities for mental stimulation, social interaction, and organized participation in life's daily activities. This helps our participants to function at their highest levels at home and in the community, for as long as is appropriate.
Often referred to as the "second victim" of Alzheimer's disease, a caregiver's life can be turned upside down when a relative is diagnosed with a cognitive impairment like Alzheimer's disease. For this reason, AFDC also offers programs to support and educate family caregivers.
