eCareDiary's caregiving expert, Margery Pabst will speak to Dr. Jeffrey Levine, geriatrician at Mt. Sinai Hospital and photographer about ageism and opportunities for caregivers to change perceptions towards older loved adults.
Matthew Silva of the Midwest Institute for Addiction, talks about common addictions among older adults and how their institute assists in helping caregivers to advocate for them.
Matthew Silva earned a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, Masters in Rehabilitation Counseling and Masters in Business Administration. Matt is also a Certified Reciprocal Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor. He considers himself extremely fortunate to have been able to study and be supervised by Jack Platt, an extremely brilliant and nationally recognized therapist.
He struggled with a personal addiction which began a journey into his own recovery and a new love for life. This journey was the start of a desire to learn more about addictions so that he could assist others.
He has worked at BJC Behavioral Health as a Community Support worker, SSM St Joseph Hospital as a Psychiatric Therapist, and Director/Service Coordinator of SSM New Vision Detoxification unit. More recently he served as a substance abuse counselor and Vice President of Operational Affairs for Assisted Recovery Centers of America.
One of Matt's more recent projects was the co-founding of the Temperance House, which has been a successful transitional home for individuals in recovery. After the launch of the Temperance House and achieving his MBA in 2011, Matt made the decision to use his knowledge and expertise to develop an optimum and comprehensive treatment center now known as Midwest Institute for Addiction.

But as for you, speak the things which are fitting for sound doctrine. Older men are to be temperate, dignified, sensible, sound in faith, in love, in perseverance.
Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.
