Dr. Richard W. Lindsay

Lindsay is professor emeritus of Internal Medicine and Family Medicine at the UVA Health Sciences Center and founder of the Division of Geriatric Medicine at UVA. As a practicing geriatrician for four decades, he has personally witnessed the effects of caregiving on his patients’ family members and has experienced it himself through caring for his mother. Lindsay founded the Lindsay Institute for Innovations in Caregiving in 2013 to “preserve and improve the wellness of family caregivers, with a special focus on the Alzheimer’s caregiver.” He works as a project consultant for the institute. Since retiring from the University of Virginia, where he founded and directed the Division of Geriatric Medicine, Lindsay continues to teach medical students.
