Carol Lumsden Van LeeuwenWelcome to Wellness & Aging Matters.
My name is Carol Lumsden Van Leeuwen.

I am the Chief Geriatric Wellness Officer at Wellness and Aging Matters.

My first love was exercise and fitness and then as a young girl, my eldest brother became ill, so suddenly my parents and my siblings had to learn how to become family caregivers.

My parents were professionals and business owners, so I saw firsthand what it means to provide care to a loved one, take care of career demands, and still manage to have a family and personal life.

After three plus decades of nursing, I found that I really enjoyed working with older adults, especially those who are motivated to remain young-hearted and active.

That love for fitness and wellness pulled me into wellness coaching with specialization in the care of people challenged with Parkinson's Disease.

I am a strong believer that you may have Parkinson's, but it does NOT have to have you.

In my experience, I also discovered that many older adults have a difficult time navigating our fragmented elderly healthcare system, especially those who do not have adult children or family members who are able to provide care and support.

I have combined my experience as a family caregiver, a nurse specialized in functional fitness for Parkinson's patients, a wellness coach and a good neighbor into an independent geriatric wellness practice called WELLNESS & AGING MATTERS LLC.

I personally welcome you and look forward to being of service to you and your loved one.

Who We Serve

Services we provide

Our services are delivered through three departments: Transitional Care Coordination, Chronic Illness Management & Geriatric Wellness.

This is a service that helps family members find and explore information, recommendations, options, answers, and solutions when a loved one is going from one level of care or place of care to another. A daughter who lives out of state might use transitional care coordination when she needs to know if it is time for her 85-year-old mother to move to an assisted living facility or if she wants to know how to find the right doctor or the right service provider for her mother.

This is the service that helps the older adults who suffer from chronic health conditions learn how to manage chronic symptoms, stay home, stay as well as possible, thrive, stay out of the emergency room, and prevent unnecessary hospital readmissions. This service helps health care providers to organize, coordinate and deliver the best quality of care possible under the circumstances at hand.

This service helps older adults to strive and reach optimal wellness through medication compliance, adequate nutrition, hydration, sleep, mobility, exercise and laughter.
