All Home Care Matters was honored to welcome Dr. Catie Chung as a guest to the show to discuss senior care and how for many families they don’t know what they don’t know.
Catie Chung is a registered nurse with a PhD in Nursing, certified case manager, professor of nursing, coach, researcher, & certified mindfulness meditation teacher… and she’s a proud member of Generation X.
When Catie was a teenager, her grandmother began struggling with dementia. Those experiences sowed the seeds that would later lead Catie to a career in nursing, with the majority of her experience being as a registered nurse case manager in home health, serving seniors and their families. Catie also pursued a doctorate in nursing where she developed research and education skills.
When her dad was diagnosed with Stage 4 neck cancer in 2012, Catie saw from the patient side of the bed how truly overwhelming healthcare and senior care were.
Currently, Catie is working with graduate nursing students and community organizations to boost the healthcare workforce for senior adults in southern Nevada. She also started the website NurseCatie.com to support, inform, and prepare Gen Xers “in the sandwich” for the coming Gray Tsunami of aging adults in the US.
