Volunteers make a difference by tutoring in the classrooms, becoming career mentors, helping other seniors get the health care they need, supporting those who served in the military or their families, and building capacity so neighborhood non-profits will be more effective in reaching their goal.

    Ten Minutes With Paula - Guest Dr. Dave Morgan: Byrd Alzheimer's Institute

    Ten Minutes With Paula - Guest Dr. Dave Morgan: Byrd Alzheimer's Institute

    This is a special episode, kicking off the new year with an exciting interview with Dr. Dave Morgan, CEO of the Johnnie Byrd Alzheimer's Institute.

    The USF Health Byrd Alzheimer's Institute is dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care ofAlzheimer's disease and related disorders.

    With a state-of-the-art building and a highly qualified team of physicians, memory care specialists, researchers and educators, they are in the forefront of Alzheimer's research and patient care.

    The rapid growth of the Institute and the need for groundbreaking approaches to the care and treatment of patients with memory disorders has led them to develop the concept of the Center for Memory C.A.R.E. (Clinical Assessment, Research & Education). The entire second floor of our Institute is a revolutionary Center that provides the most up-to-date diagnostic and caregiving services to patients and their families in One Place.

    We're very honored to have Dr. Morgan as our guest on this podcast.  Many of us met Dr. Morgan when the Caregivers Support Group did their own field trip to the Johnnie Byrd facility las year.  So, while "Ten Minutes with Paula" is normally a podcast about caregiving, today's episode is about helping you understand what's being done in Alzheimer's research and the incredible work Dr. Morgan and his team are doing to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's.

    For information about the Johnnie Byrd Alzheimer's Institute, please visit their website. If you'd like to find out more about the Cargegiver's Support Group, information about the Friendship Centers is on our website.

She has a Masters Degree in social work and from her own personal experience with her husband's Alzheimer's understands the importance of caregivers developing a strong coping mechanism.

    Many members of this support group have become good friends and provide a support network. Now, we want to share what we've learned in a series of short podcasts, each one about a tip to help you stay focused on your own health and well-being, as well as the loved one you're caring for.

    Paula Falk is the Director of the Caregiver Resource Center (CRC) and Adult Day Service Program at The Living Room at Senior Friendship Centers’ Sarasota campus.
