Louis and Anne Green Memory & Wellness Center
The Louis and Anne Green Memory & Wellness Center is a unique and integral component of the Christine E. Lynn College of Nursing and is grounded in the College's philosophy 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 as an individual, with dignity and respect, enabling each client to function at his or her personal best while maximizing their quality of life.
In addition to the services provided, the Center conducts research on best practices in care for persons with Alzheimer's disease and related disorders (ADRD) 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 respond to individual needs in a caring way.
History: The Center opened in November 2001 with a start-up grant from the National Institutes of Health, Administration on Aging. The Center moved into its current building in December 2004. Funding for the new facility came in a form of 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, supportive and educational services, and research activities.
In July 2005 the Memory & Wellness Center became a state-designated Memory Disorder Clinic under the State of Florida's Alzheimer's Disease Initiative. As such, the Center actively participates in the state network of 16 Memory Disorder Clinics.
