    "As a solo caregiver, I would be lost without The Ivey and their consistently caring staff. They not only care for my loved one, they care for the entire family and, for me, they have become my extended family on our journey."

You Don’t Have to Face Memory Loss Alone

If you or someone you love is facing memory loss, you need help. The Ivey offers 3 Brain Health Solutions with educational workshops, afternoon respite for those living with memory loss, and personalized caregiver support and services to empower caregivers throughout the memory loss journey. Since 2008, we have walked alongside more than 600 families who are facing dementia.
