MyCatholicDoctor is delighted to provide

Geriatric and Dementia Caregiver Support.

MyCatholicDoctor’s geriatric and dementia coaches, Aimee Gustitis, RN, JD, and Matt Estrade, MA, Gerontology, work with caregivers to create customized treatment plans for their loved one that respects their individual needs – body, mind, and spirit. They can work with patients who are living at home or in a facility setting.

Treatment plans may include any or all of the following:

  • Telehealth care from a physician experienced in geriatrics
  • Geriatric and dementia coaching  from a geriatric health coach with decades of experience creating customized care plans that are pro life at the end of life
  • Remote patient monitoring using CareMate, a device that allows us to track a patient’s location as well as certain vital signs including heart rate and respiratory rate
  • Virtual geriatric support groups on Zoom, including our rosary based support group for people with dementia and their loved ones

Finding a healthcare provider who shares your pro life and pro eternal life values is necessary when discussing these heavy concerns with your care team. Allow us to provide that support and walk alongside you during this journey. You are able to invite multiple caregivers into one meeting, such as siblings or spouses.

As needed, our team is also grateful to help you arrange for ethical end-of-life care consistent with Catholic teaching.

Make an Appointment with our Geriatric and Dementia Care Team

MyCatholicDoctor provides a safe environment for loved ones to discuss their concerns with our team. Telehealth appointments provide the opportunity to begin working one-on-one with a geriatric care specialist right from your home. As a caregiver, we know you’re busy. That’s why we provide flexible scheduling, including nights and weekends, to meet at a time that is convenient for you.

These providers can meet with caregivers located in any state.

Have these thoughts lingered in your head?

“As a Caregiver, I feel overwhelmed by the constant care my loved one requires. I love them dearly, but I can’t handle the stress it is adding to my life.”

“My siblings and I are emotionally taxed with how to cope with the dementia care our mother now requires. We feel crippled to make the next decision.”

“It is my parents intention to age gracefully in their home, but I have no idea what kind of care they will require to make this a reality.”

“The needs of my loved one require too much of my time. My relationship with my husband and my health, are suffering.”

If you have ever had these thoughts or find yourself in this situation, please know that it is normal to feel this way. There is support available to you, and we are grateful to provide the resources needed for you as a caregiver.
