About Iona

Since 1975, Iona has been a trusted provider of essential ser-
vices for older adults in the metropolitan Washington, DC
area, their families, and the community. Iona’s mission is
to support people as they experience the challenges
and opportunities of aging. We educate, advocate,
and provide community-based services to help peo-
ple age well and live well. We envision a community that
celebrates, values, respects, and protects the contributions
and possibilities of every individual.

Advocacy

We believe advocacy is a vital component in our work with
older adults and caregivers. Iona has touched tens of thou-
sands of metropolitan DC residents through our efforts to ex-
pand quality long term care choices for seniors with chronic
care needs, improve pedestrian safety, and educate the public
and government leaders on aging-related concerns. Three
advocacy groups, hosted and supported by Iona, are de-
scribed below:

The DC Coalition on Long Term Care
Comprised of consumers, advocates, and health care pro-
viders, the DC Coalition on Long Term Care has the sin-
gular goal to expand quality long term care options for DC
seniors. The DC Coalition advocates for improvements in
home care, assisted living, workforce development, and
more.
Citizens Advisory Council
Comprised entirely of volunteer leaders, the Iona Citizens
Advisory Council (C.A.C.) seeks to draw more attention
and resources to the needs of seniors, including continu-
ing opportunities to contribute to the community. As the
Wart 3 Mini-Commission on Aging, the Council works to
identify community needs, promote collaboration among
senior groups, and educate the community on aging is-
sues.
D.C. Senior Advisory Coalition
The S.A.C. seeks to be the unifying voice advocating to
improve the quality of life for and with seniors in the Dis-
trict of Columbia.

Caregiver and Take Charge/Age Well
Consultations

Iona’s social workers and nurse care managers are seasoned
professionals who have been working with older adults, their
families, and caregivers for over 35 years. Iona knows each
situation is unique. Depending on the needs, Iona’s staff can
offer options designed to help someone remain as independ-
ent as possible. Iona provides customized consultations to
older adults and caregivers on a variety of issues, including:

 Whether to move or remain at home.
 Legal and financial concerns such as powers of attor-

ney and how to pay for services.
 How to find the right medical help, including assess-

ments for memory loss.
 How to manage health issues.
 Which senior living communities might be the best

fit.
 How to find home care.
 Referrals to transportation, support groups, and so-

cial activities.

Care Management

Care management at Iona begins with a comprehensive in-
home assessment to determine an older adult’s preferences
and needs. Our seasoned care managers then work with the
older adult and his or her family to develop a plan specifically
tailored to each individual circum-stance. Whether the plan
involves setting up home care or moving to another living ar-
rangement, Iona’s care managers are here to help.

www.iona.org ix

Corporate Eldercare

In the United States, one in four people care for a loved one.
Of those who care for an older adult, over half are employed
full-time. Iona corporate eldercare helps employers and em-
ployees balance the responsibilities of caregiving and work.
Through confidential and comprehensive support, our li-
censed eldercare managers are available to provide custom-
ized assessments and care planning, referrals to community
services, educational seminars, support groups, one-on-one
short term counseling, and written advice and reports.

Counseling Services

The aging process can bring emotional challenges to older
adults and caregivers alike. Our licensed clinical social work-
ers provide individual counseling, as well as support groups,
on a variety of topics including depression, anxiety, memory
loss, chronic illness, caregiving, and grief and loss.

Educational Workshops

Iona offers educational workshops on a variety of topics, in-
cluding art, caregiver concerns, community resources, poetry,
and wellness.

x 202.895.9448

Exercise/Fitness Classes

Iona provides a variety of exercise and fitness classes at both
our main center and our St. Alban’s location. Taught by expe-
rienced instructors, Iona’s classes help active older adults
maintain and improve coordination, strength, and balance.
Classes include aerobic exercise, body toning, Qi Gong, Tai
Chi, Yoga, and more.

The Gallery at Iona

Open Monday through Friday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, the Gal-
lery at Iona features art created by talented local older adult
artists. Every four months, we highlight the work of different
older adult artists-in-residence. Our artists also lead free
hands-on workshops at various times during the year.

Health Insurance Counseling

Through our partnership with the Health Insurance Counsel-
ing Project, free once-a-month health insurance counseling
for DC older adults is offered at Iona.

Help at Home

Iona offers many services geared to help older adults age-in-
place.

tions, care management, home-delivered meals, medi-
cal equipment loan closet, and transportation op-
tions).

Legal Assistance

fice to answer legal questions, complete a claims report, write
a consumer complaint letter, check for benefits, and more.

Medical Equipment Loan Closet

Iona provides free loans of donated medical equipment to
older adults and caregivers throughout the DC metropolitan
area. Medical equipment typically available for loan includes
adjustable canes, walkers, rollators, wheelchairs, bath seats,
transfer benches, and commodes. Iona accepts a limited
number of donations of these items in good repair. Dona-
tions of exceptionally large equipment are evaluated on a case
-by-case basis. Please call (202) 895-9448, select option 4,
first to make sure it is an item Iona is currently seeking.
Donations of high calorie, high protein nutritional supple-
ments, like Ensure Plus or Boost, are gratefully accepted and
needed. Vanilla flavor is the most useful to our clients.
Please check product expiration date prior to donating.

Nutrition Assessment and Counseling

Good nutrition matters to everyone, but is especially im-
portant for older adults with chronic diseases hoping to main-
tain an active lifestyle. Iona’s registered and licensed nutri-
tionist also provides nutritional assessments, counseling, and
medical nutrition therapy to older adults with diabetes,
weight-management needs, failure-to-thrive issues, gastroin-
testinal disorders, cancer, and other challenges.

& arts center; educational workshops; exercise/

Support Groups

The aging process can bring emotional challenges to seniors
and caregivers alike. Iona provides support groups in addi-
tion to individual consults at Iona on a variety of topics in-
cluding the challenges of aging, memory loss, vision loss,
Parkinson’s Disease, and caregiving.

www.iona.org xiii

Transportation Options

Iona coordinates a variety of transportation options for DC
seniors, within a limited service area, including medical
transportation, Call ‘N’ Ride taxi vouchers, and the Iona gro-
cery bus.

Volunteer Opportunities and Services

Volunteers play an integral part at Iona, serving in every facet
of our work. Direct-service volunteers help deliver meals;
grocery shop or provide companionship for older adults who
are homebound; read to older adults with low-vision; and as-
sist activity staff at our Wellness & Arts Center and at our Ac-
tive Wellness Program at St. Alban’s. Behind-the-scenes Iona
volunteers assist with advocacy, event planning, communica-
tions, community outreach, reception desk, and clerical work.
Iona also welcomes experienced professionals and student
interns in art therapy, business, counseling, nursing, social
work, administration, and more. Volunteer opportunities are
available for adults, youth, and families. For more infor-
mation, please call (202) 895-9425 or email us at volun-
[email protected]

xiv 202.895.9448

Wellness & Arts Center at Iona

Iona’s award-winning Weinberg Wellness & Arts Center sup-
ports older adults living with memory loss and/or physical
disabilities by offering daily social engagement in a medically
supervised program. Art therapy, exercise, brain-boosting
programs, caregiver support, and wellness services help par-
ticipants and their families thrive. Iona offers a person-
centered, holistic approach to care - coupled with a profes-
sional staff of registered nurses, certified nursing assistants,
program specialists, and a social worker and art therapist.

Support Iona

The Iona Resource Guide is provided to the community free
of charge, but we depend on individual and corporate support
to continue providing the vital services listed above. A dona-
tion to Iona makes a difference to neighbors, their families,
and our whole community.
Consider that it takes more than $100 to deliver one hour of
quality, compassionate one-on-one counseling to an older
adult who is all alone and vulnerable because of illness, disa-
bility, or grief. That one hour of counseling could be the dif-
ference between a life that continues to be lived in the com-
munity, or a life lived in unnecessary and expensive institu-
tionalization.

www.iona.org xv

A gift of $1,000 would mean the world to a family facing the
challenges of Alzheimer’s disease. A contribution to Iona
helps them participate in Iona’s award-winning Weinberg
Wellness & Arts Center. A loved one receives person-
centered care during the day with exercise, art therapy, com-
panionship, and brain-boosting activities while a caregiver
receives much needed respite from the responsibilities of
caregiving.

Care Management and Eldercare Consults

Geriatric care managers help seniors and their families address
caregiving needs. Typically trained in social work or nursing, care
managers help by assessing a senior’s needs, developing a long
term care plan, arranging for services, and monitoring for future
needs.

Iona Care Management 202-895-9448
4125 Albemarle St. NW, Washington, DC 20016
Care management at Iona begins with a comprehensive in-home
assessment to determine an older adult’s preferences and
needs. Our seasoned care managers then work with the older
adult, and his or her family, to develop a plan specifically tailored
to each senior’s individual circumstances. Whether the plan in-
volves setting up home care or moving to another living arrange-
ment, Iona’s care managers are here to help.

(For more information, see page 11.)

Iona Caregiver and Take Charge/ 202-895-9448

Age Well Consultations

make services affordable), selecting an assisted living community
or nursing home, help with powers of attorney, selecting home
care, and finding medical care.

End-of-Life Care

Hospice and Palliative Care

and supportive services to people with certain life-limiting diagno-

surance providers, including Medicare and Medicaid, cover hospice
services.
