Catholic Aging in Partnership with MyCatholicDoctor

Founder of Catholic Aging Matthew Estrade, MA, MBA - Gerontologist

Matthew’s calling to journey with families impacted with dementia was initiated when his grandfather developed a memory impairment in the late 1990s. All he could do was watch his mother try to cope as her father’s caregiver and advocate while she raised a family and worked.

Fast forward to the present, where Matthew works with families to find solutions to their pressing problems – something that his mother could have used, but could not find decades ago.

He has built an educational platform at Catholic Aging with daily videos, weekly blog articles, and monthly live Rosaries. All of these activities are built around his book, The Peace with Dementia Rosary: Education, Intentions, Community.

The Catholic Aging ministry, in all of its forms-website, book, education, and one on one services -is consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Any good fruit is from Her through her Son, Jesus Christ; any faults are of the ministry.

What does the ministry do?

We offer hope for families impacted by dementia through practical caregiving strategies and through the doctrine & tradition of our beautiful Catholic Faith.

We are pro-life, pro-family, and pro-eternal life.

How do we offer hope?

The Peace with Dementia Rosary: Education, Intentions, Community
Speaking at conferences and Catholic parishes
Our community, including the Dementia Prayer wall for your intentions
Daily FB videos, weekly e-newsletters, monthly interview videos/podcasts
