    The Ivey really saved my life and enriched my husband’s life after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. My husband’s neurologist told us this would be a wonderful place for him to come during the day and return to our home at night. The Ivey itself is a lovely space. Handsome living room, dining room and den where members can talk by the warming fireplace. The enclosed outdoor porch is full of plants, rocking chairs and bird feeders. The other spaces are very welcoming and are used for arts and crafts, bathing, hair care and quiet reflection. Members are greeted each day with a hug from a warm and caring staff. They really become family! They are interested in getting to know the members’ hobbies, interests and talents. They treat each person with dignity and respect. All are very well trained in dementia and know how to engage each person in ways I did not even think about: dancing, game playing, and singing, for example. I think The Ivey is Charlotte's jewel for assisting both caregivers and their loved ones in getting the critical care that is needed to better cope with this hideous disease.

    My husband was diagnosed with early on-set Alzheimer's eight years ago and didn't decline until about 2 years ago. I was still working from home and had to find something for my husband to do. I was familiar with The Ivey from attending their support group. He loved going to The Ivey and loved to dance and paint and visit with Lynn Ivey in her office. It was a lifesaver for me and enabled me to keep my job. The staff there is second to none. I can't thank them enough for everything that did for my husband.
