    About My Business
    Iona was founded in 1975 and has grown into one of the most trusted non-profit providers of essential services for seniors and family caregivers in the greater Washington, DC area.

    Iona's mission is to support people 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.
    About My Services
    Iona’s core programs are built around the needs of those who are facing challenges in aging. Through Iona’s Consultation, Care Management and Counseling program, compassionate and highly trained social workers and nurse care manager work with older adults and family members to plan for future needs, navigate through health crises, arrange for and monitor services in the home, and counsel individuals suffering through issues such as grief and loss. Iona’s Weinberg Wellness, & Arts Center is a state-of-the-art day program that provides companionship, exercise and wellness programming, nursing care, and opportunities for individual engagement and expression through a range of enriching activities including art therapy. The Wellness & Arts Center was named a “Center for Excellence in Dementia Care” by the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America in 2008.

    Other Iona programs help support caregivers and promote healthy aging. Iona offers caregiver support groups, facilitated by an experienced geriatric social worker/psychotherapist at the Breckinridge Building in Tenleytown and at community partner locations throughout the metro area. At the Active Wellness at St. Alban’s, older people from all over the city and close-in Maryland suburbs take exercise and wellness classes, educational workshops and have a nutritious lunch.

    Iona’s Breckinridge Building in Tenleytown, just a block from the Tenleytown Metro station on the Red Line, bustles with a wide diversity of people coming to and from a Sibley Hospital Physician office in the clinic in the building; to take part in a support group, exercise classes or educational workshop; or to visit the Gallery at Iona, now beginning its fifth year. Iona’s *volunteer corps, now 700 strong, is an intergenerational group of people who come and go throughout the work week and on Saturdays to deliver meals to the homebound and serve as volunteer companions to the homebound.
    Experience And Credentials
    Iona has been a lead agency for the DC Office on Aging since 1982. Iona was part of an important feedback loop in the development of a cutting-edge best practice in geriatric case management that we continue to employ to ensure compassionate and expert care in the community. Iona is the convener of the Community Ethics Panel, serving all of the greater metropolitan region's community-based social workers who need support and guidance in their work with elders in the community. The Weinberg Wellness & Arts Center was named a Center of Excellence in Dementia Care in 2008 by the Alzheimber's Foundation of America.
