About Me

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 www.DementiaRosary.com 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.

Matthew has been a care partner support group facilitator for 5 years and has facilitated over 250 sessions for the Council on Aging in St. Tammany Parish (county) in Louisiana. Because of COVID-19, he has facilitated these on an online platform since March 2020.

He earned undergraduate and graduate degrees from Auburn University and the University of New Orleans, respectively, and in 2017 he finished a Master’s in Gerontology from the University of Louisiana at Monroe.

Matthew lives in the Greater New Orleans area with his wife and three children. Matt volunteers in the Health Ministry at Mary, Queen of Peace Parish and as a Boy Scout leader at Our Lady of the Lake Parish. He earned his Eagle Scout award in 1992.

Patients I See

Matthew coaches care partners (caregivers) of persons living with Alzheimer’s or related dementias in strategies to make the best of a challenging situation. Appointments are typically for care partners so that they can speak frankly, however, they may include the person living with dementia if that is preferred. He also facilitates care partner support groups online to help them find fellowship and brainstorm solutions together. Support groups are also offered for persons living with dementia in the early stages. To Matthew, it is a privilege partnering with families to see what can be done to live life to its fullest.
