About Us

Hattie Davis and her husband Anthony owns Gracie Sturdivant Care Homes in
Raleigh and Knightdale NC.


Hattie is a Registered nurse with master’s degrees in Nursing, Business, and
Health Administration. She also has vast experience in healthcare management
and administration from Brigham & Women’s hospitals in Boston Mass, Duke
University in NC and various collegiate positions.
As a health care professional working in large fast pace medical centers, Hattie fell
in the trap of treating the illness vs the patient Along the way, she witnessed
patients lacking basic needs and support. These needs included; individual care,
emotional support, nutritional observation, monitoring patients at high risk for
falls and confusion and so on.
Later in the years, Hattie and Anthony had to place their mom and mother-in-law
in nursing homes in the early 90’s for Dementia care. There were very few choices
in long term care in those early days, so they were placed in traditional nursing
home facilities.
Neither of these wonderful and loving mothers of 29 children totally, received
optimal care. They were given custodial management vs humanized, engaging,
patient-centered care. These two women were gracefully welcomed into heaven
a few years later.
Years later, Hattie still pondered the memories of sadness and heartbreak her
mom’s must have experienced in their facilities. They must have felt alone, and
isolated with all the unfamiliar staff and procedures. In 2009, Gracie Sturdivant
Care Homes were born. Gracie is her mother-in-law’s first name and Sturdivant is
her mom’s maiden name. Hattie and Anthony vowed to give these two women a
second chance by caring for someone else’s loved one.
Gracie Sturdivant Care Homes are small assisted living facilities located in
Knightdale & North Raleigh. Hattie and her staff provide patient-centered-care
for Dementia residents with various associating illnesses such as Diabetes,
hypertension, wound care, respiratory and GI involvements. Most of all they
define care as respective and responsive to the individual needs, values and
choices. She and her team treat the resident vs the disease. Emotional support
and alleviating, fear and anxiety is an important factor of their lives. Residents
