A Decade of “Whole Family Support”
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 — allows family members to remain in their homes longer and improve their quality of life
Built around our FIVE KEY PROGRAMS, The Ivey provides a full array of research-based care approaches and convenient on-campus 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 member’s family, and is relentless in its commitment to keeping pace with 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 family caregivers need to stay refreshed and resume their 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.
Mind & Body Wellness – Nurturing our members with meaningful activities like brain & body fitness, nourishing meals, and on-site physical, speech & occupational therapies.
Healthcare Program – Providing our members with second-to-none personal care, on-site RN supervision, and ongoing health monitoring.
Cultural Arts Therapy Program – Wielding the proven power of music, art and other cultural therapies to treat the disease and improve our members’ lives.

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 homecare. When it comes to Charlotte care for memory loss, The Ivey is significantly more cost effective than other Charlotte health care options
- 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 memory care offers full-time, on-site 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.
Recently, a short video of ours went “viral” on Facebook. In it, you’ll get a sense of the magic that happens with our members each and every day at The Ivey:
Hello, Dolly!In the final moments of this video, you will see the power that music has in touching individuals living with memory loss. Elizabeth is singing, dancing, remembering lyrics, having fun…and in the last seconds, is clearly moved emotionally. The Ivey strives for these powerful moments — all day, every day — as our care team nurtures these beautiful souls.
