Lynn Ivey
CEO and Founder
The Ivey Memory Wellness Day Center
Topic: My Six Steps from Hopeless to Empowered Along My Parents' Dementia Journey

After 25 years in Corporate America, Lynn Ivey left a successful career behind for a very different life. The 61-year-old walked away from banking to care for her parents, who both battled dementia, and in the process found her life’s passion … and a husband! Lynn now runs The Ivey, Charlotte’s only memory wellness day center. She broke ground on the non-profit facility the same week her mom passed away. The Ivey provides daytime care for people living with memory loss from Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia, and she’s been helping care for other families for almost a decade now.


As Charlotte’s only memory wellness day center, we provide second-to-none daytime care for your loved one in our stimulating, social environment. Each day at The Ivey is intentionally designed with the preferences, interests and needs of each member in mind.  The schedule is predictable to help with memory retention, but content varies to keep it interesting and stimulating. Everyday living activities are incorporated throughout the day to feel like home. Step inside The Ivey, and you'll find a surprisingly diverse membership – along with a strategically-diverse array of therapeutic and programmatic offerings.

This week’s survey covers Dr. Pamela Davies / "Queens -- Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. Next week's survey will ask about Friday's speaker.

Each week, the survey asks your opinion about the last meeting's speaker and topic.  The survey opens for replies from the time it is sent until the Thursday. Results are confidential and only shared with Board members.
