Testimonials

Kristin Peterson-Senf

Recently visited my mother who has Alzheimer’s and whom also tends to be little feisty. I very much appreciated the staff taking care of her. She appeared clean, well groomed, and was not pressured to do anything she did not wish to participate in. The staff was welcoming and provided activities such as music for the residents. It’s very difficult to grasp the toll that Alzheimer’s can take on a person, as well as the family. The only thing we can take comfort in, is knowing she is well taken care of and in a place that provides activities to keep her mind and body active. From the bottom of my heart, I thank the staff at Ivy Lodge for providing such care.

"Ivy Lodge has been caring for our mother with dementia for a few years and we have felt a great sense of relief knowing the level of care that she has received. The facilities are beautiful, the care is exceptional and we feel lucky to have found Ivy Lodge. Having an aging parent that needs special care is challenging on families, the decision to move her to a care facility was a difficult one but Ivy Lodge has gone above our expectations and continues to give her the special care she needs." Thank you again for creating a safe and caring environment for my mother.

Ivy Lodge has been a godsend for our mother while she battled dementia. The caring, supportive environment kept Mom safe and that in turn, allowed us to relax.  We always enjoy our visits with her at Ivy Lodge and speaking with the dedicated and knowledgeable staff always brighten our day.  Thank you!

“My wife became a resident of Ivy Lodge in early 2021. I chose Ivy primarily because it was established and led by Dr. Joan Hyde, one of the most important pathfinders and leaders in elder and dementia care in the United States. Dr. Hyde stepped back from her day to day management role several months ago, but remains closely connected to Ivy.

Ivy is an intimate facility and I have found the quality of professional care beyond anything I could have hoped for. The staff are caring and compassionate and that really matters, particularly in elder and dementia care where residents can sometimes be challenging.

I recommend Ivy Lodge to anyone looking for a safe and caring home for their loved one.

“Ivy Lodge has been the answer to our prayers when we had to make a decision about our elderly mom’s care and the challenges of dementia. It was the hardest decision ever…and the best one! Ivy Lodge is providing her with a quality of life that she would not receive elsewhere. It’s the perfect size to provide personal care and attention on a daily basis. There are many opportunities for socialization from music, arts & crafts; plus movement. The staff are wonderful beyond words. Her room is always clean and neat. Her laundry is done regularly and the dining facilities and food are exceptional. When I call, whoever I talk to is knowledgeable about my mom, willing to spend time talking with me and able to answer all of my questions and alleviate my concerns. Ivy Lodge is definitely a piece of heaven.
