I-CARE Project Manager | Tony Ivey, Sr.

Tony Ivey serves as the Vice President and director of operations for I-CARE, Inc. He moved to the Northern Virginia area in 1987 after graduating from Oklahoma State University with a B.S. in Engineering Technology.

In 1993, Tony, a project manager by trade, took some time off from his management responsibilities in the private sector to assist I-CARE in documenting compliance to state regulations that allowed the company to become a licensed home health organization in Virginia.

Throughout the 90s, Tony continued to help Donna establish and manage I-CARE while still working in his field outside of the home. When Donna decided to create a home office, Tony constructed and created a beautiful office out of their large basement suitable to fit 3-4 employees. Tony has also constructed custom assistive devices for clients.

Donna saw the talented attributes Tony had, and asked him to come work for I-CARE full time in 2002. Tony not only brought his construction management background, but also his financial, human resource and organizational skills.

In 2004 when Tony, & Donna’s daughter became physically disabled with Multiple Sclerosis, Tony transformed their living room into her bedroom. There, she would have enough room to navigate her wheelchair and other assistive devices. Tony understood it was also important to have Ashley on the first level of their home for safety reasons. Later, he worked with contractors to install a chair lift in their home so that Ashley had the option of going upstairs, as well as ramps to make transporting Ashley easier.

Utilizing his medical experience from I-CARE, Tony was able to expertly help his two parents who Alzheimer’s.

Tony realized his skills and experience could be used to help clients who wanted to stay at their home safely. Tony also provides livability safety assessments for clients. Homebound clients request his services when they need a trustworthy person to install stair lifts, shower benches, ramps and home additions that allow clients to stay in their home. Tony vets all contractors and manages the entire project, ensuring all clients needs are met.
