Optimizing brain health & memory wellness
Nestled on a tree-lined campus in the heart of SouthPark, The Ivey is the Charlotte region’s premier Brain Health Solutions organization, complete with a daily Respite Club, Caregiver Resources and the 2021 launch of Brain Health Workshops. The Ivey was founded in 2008 by CEO Lynn Ivey as a tribute to her mother, who lived with Alzheimer’s disease, and her father, her mother’s loving caregiver.
Through the power of education and a community of support for the entire family, The Ivey’s programs are designed to optimize brain health for aging well, promote memory wellness and provide respite, knowledge and resources for families and the Charlotte community.
The Ivey’s daily Respite Club provides socially engaging, educational and memory-enhancing activities within a structured and supervised environment, as well as appropriate physical activities for individuals with early cognitive issues. Caregiver Resources encompass a wide range of assistance, from care coordination to caregiver support groups.
Modifiable risk factors that reduce the risk of cognitive decline and dementia are the focus of the Brain Health Workshops. Offered three times a year, workshops are led by professional, licensed experts, delivering ways to keep the brain sharp and age well. “Dementia doesn’t have to be our destiny as we age,” Ivey says.
A recent strategic collaboration between The Ivey and Southminster is poised to improve the lives of area residents by fostering healthy lifestyles through education and shared resources. With a commitment to excellence, the two local nonprofits will have a lasting, long-term impact on families who seek a brain-healthy lifestyle through memory-wellness programming and brain-health education.
