Compassionate volunteers are a vital part of The Ivey family! Our volunteer program is called The Barretta Circle (named in honor of our longest-tenured volunteer, Tony Barretta), a special group of individuals who donate their time, talent and passion to support The Ivey, its members and their families. By giving of themselves, our volunteers enhance the lives of many individuals living with memory loss — and in the process, they develop treasured relationships with our members.

We rely on caring volunteers like you to support our Care Team and provide our members with extra love, attention and compassion. Your time and talent can make a world of difference to our wonderful members and their grateful families.
