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.
