Our Story

The Ivy Terrace of Lapeer Story began with the idea of providing the best possible experience for residents. Constructed from the vision of the late Gary DeShano, its European influence stands as a beacon of elegance and prestige in the area. Ever since the beginning, DeShano designed the Ivy Terrace of Lapeer with the comfort and confidence of residents at the forefront. Providing a level of luxury that removes the traditional burden of home ownership, while simultaneously offering best-in-class amenities, attention, and adventure is the foundation we stand on. 

“Life is Better When Shared With Someone Else”

Community Director, Jeanette TerBush

Jeanette was born and raised in Mayville, MI, and is the resident director of Ivy Terrace Lapeer. Jeanette has been a caregiver and personal home health aide for over 10 years. During this time of caregiving, she has shown kindness and dedication as she strives to help meet the daily needs of those she cares for. We are proud to have her as a part of our team here at Ivy Terrace where she now serves as resident director and will coordinate and facilitate the daily happenings of Ivy Terrace.

Jeanette currently resides in Dryden, MI with her husband of over 20 years and their four beautiful children. You will immediately discover that she considers all those within her care to be like family. It is her goal to make Ivy Terrace feel like home as soon as you arrive.

CEO of DeShano Development Corp, Gary DeShano

The late great Gary DeShano found the inspiration for the Ivy Terrace of Lapeer from a combination of over 55 years of experience as well as European influences. After Gary and his wife were taken aback by European architecture and landscape, they instantly knew that style needed to be incorporated into the construction of the new Ivy Terrace of Lapeer senior living community. The French bistro, Mediterranean room with oversized hot tub, hand-painted murals, and other creative outdoor spaces will forever ring as a tribute to the amazing work of Gary DeShano.
