Welcome
The Louis and Anne Green Memory & Wellness Center

 
The Louis and Anne Green Memory and Wellness Center is a unique Center of the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing and is grounded in the College's concept of caring. Our mission is to meet the complex needs of persons with memory disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease, and their families through a comprehensive array of services, compassionate and innovative programs of care, research and education.  Our intention is to treat each person with dignity and respect, enabling each client to function at his or her personal best and to maximize quality of life.
 
In addition to service, the Center conducts research on best practices in care for persons with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders and caregiver support.   We also provide practicum experiences for students of nursing, medicine, social work, exercise science, communication disorders, health administration and other disciplines.
We aim to understand "what matters most" to each client and family and to respond to individual needs in a caring way. 
 
History:  The Center opened in November 2001 with a start-up grant from the National Institute of Health, Administration on Aging. The Center moved into its new building in December 2004.  Funding for the facility came from a very generous gift from Louis and Anne Green which was matched by the State of Florida.  The building was specifically designed to house a diagnostic clinic, a dementia-specific adult day center, counseling and educational activities and research activities.
 
In 2005 the Memory and Wellness Center became a State-designated Memory Disorder Clinic under the State of Florida's Alzheimer's Disease Initiative.  As such, the Center participates actively in the State network of 15 Memory Disorder Clinics.
