Gift Enables The Ivey to Buy Vacant Lot on Park South Drive!

The Ivey Memory Care Day Center has fulfilled the founder’s and staff’s long-held dream to purchase a small but well-known parcel of land, about 3/4 of an acre, next to the day center on Park South Drive. The land will be used to build two licensed family care homes with 6 beds each, for adults with memory loss. (Read more)


The Ivey Memory Wellness Day Center

The Ivey Memory Wellness Day Center was created to improve the quality of life of adults experiencing memory loss and to provide much needed support to their families.  The foundation of our unique model:  early intervention, whole family support, and high engagement, allow family members to remain in their homes longer and improve their quality of life.

Built around the four cornerstones of Life Enrichment, Health and Wellness, Family Resources and Nurturing Environment, The Ivey provides a full array of convenient on-site amenities, including rehabilitation therapies and personal care services. In partnership with Genesis Rehab Services, our full-time, on-site physical, occupational, and speech therapists provide physician-prescribed therapies, education, exercise, and behavioral change programs for members and their families.

Your loved one can experience a change of scenery and make new friends in our special, attentive environment and return to the comfort of home at night!

The Ivey’s staff embraces each member, supports and cares for each family, and is relentless in its pursuit of learning all that can be learned about the latest in non-pharmacological approaches to treatment for dementia. Compassionate and comprehensive care is provided in a beautiful, secure, lodge-style setting offering social and health services to loved ones, as well as the respite which caregivers need to stay refreshed and resume day-to-day activities.

Our customized, comprehensive memory wellness programs supports those living with memory loss due to mild cognitive impairment, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s, stroke, or other causes of dementia.

The Ivey is open 10 hours daily, from 7:30am to 5:30pm. 

  • Flexible schedule:  Choose two to five days per week
  • Affordable daily rate:  One full day is comparable to the cost of 5 hours of in-home care
  • The Ivey difference:  During the day in our beautiful environment, we keep individuals experiencing laughter, social connectedness, and physical activity.  Our nursing team monitors vital signs, administers medicines, and partners with the family in the assessment of health changes.  Our high engagement model of care offers full time, onsite professional licensed services in physical, occupational, and speech therapies for improved and sustained physical and mental functioning.  When the time comes for a change in living arrangements, we assist the family in identifying the best place for them and help coordinate the transition.
