The Ivey's amazing Art Therapist, Lela Kometiani, used molding paste today to put layers and texture on canvas. Then she had our members paint on top of it. It was really beautiful and such a cool process. This unique approach also helped our members with vision impairment by giving the canvas more definition.

If you saw this PBS special last week -- exploring how Alzheimer’s is one of the most critical public health crises facing America -- let us know what you thought. http://www.pbs.org/tpt/alzheimers-every-minute-counts/home/

Root vegetables are especially wonderful to eat during these colder months. In fact, nothing says delicious winter food more than beets, carrots, parsnips and turnips. But guess what? They also do a lot for your health -- such as reducing your cancer risk, boosting your folate intake, helping you absorb more iron, increasing your exercise stamina, and providing lots of good-for-you beta-carotene. Those are just a few of the reasons why we'll be serving some up next Tuesday! http://eepurl.com/czw_Uz

We are so grateful to The Goldberg Family for their donation of "Boots the Cat." Our members love Boots. She is the kind of tool that can reach individuals living with Alzheimer's in effective, meaningful ways. Boots provides happiness and comfort; calm during times of upset; a focal point for interaction with loved ones; nurturing feelings of caring for another; and warm reminders of a beloved pet they may have once had.

We love our executive chef, Mark Zink! And so, due to its popularity, we are "going public" with this recent intro to our weekly menu dispatch (originally sent out to our member families on December 24th):

'Twas the night before Christmas, when on Park South Drive,
Chef Mark was stirring in a handful of chives.
Working hard to create next week's lineup of lunches
That our members will eat up and then declare, "How scrumptious!"

So while your loved ones are nestled all snug in their beds,
With visions of deliciousness dancing in their heads,
We owe it all to a certain someone working in SouthPark...
The one, the only, Jolly Old Chef Mark!

At The Ivey, we often see the past come alive in magical ways. Here's a photo of one of our amazing members, Heidi, when she worked for General William S. Biddle in Regensburg, Germany, right after World War II ended (May 1945). Check out that nail polish, even in such frugal times! Well, some things never change -- as evidenced by this present-day photo of Heidi "working the phones" at The Ivey's reception desk. Besides not missing a beat with her old gig, note that she is also boasting fine pink fingernails! #foreveryoung
