For Older Adults, Caregivers, & Healthcare Providers

The concept of “healthy aging” is highly under-appreciated, but because the population of adults 65 and older is expected to double by 2050, it’s an increasingly important topic for families and their healthcare providers.

My work with elders emphasizes 3 essentials to healthy aging: optimal physical and cognitive function, meaningful engagement with one’s surroundings, and minimizing the risks of disease and disabilities. With this in mind, I’ve designed unique programs for elders so they can flourish– and even find renewed vitality in their “third act” of life. I also work with the people who care for elders, teaching them strategies and exercises that enhance the health and mobility of their clients.


  • Workshops: These programs, for older adults and their family caregivers, are designed for people over 65 who want to grow better with age. They include personalized dietary and exercise plans to increase cognitive and physical function and decrease risks of injury, home safety assessments and dementia assessments, if required. 
  • Coaching: Learn how to better meet the unique needs of your elderly patients if you’re a chiropractor or other primary care provider using best practice standards of care.
  • Brain Gym: This 60 minute interactive exercise program is designed to increase balance, strength, coordination and memory for older patients or those with neurological impairment. I provide you with an announcement poster that you can personalize for marketing in your office, as well as an exercise summary sheet to help participants recall and practice what they learned.

“My 74 year old mother has been suffering from fibromyalgia for many years. They’ve never found anything that helps her problems in the social health care system even though we’ve always had good doctors. As her daughter, I’d like to see my mother be pain free and as independent as possible.That’s why we started chiropractic care when we met Cate. Ever since then, my mother is more lively and takes much better care of herself. She’s more peaceful and sleeps better than ever, she has better balance so she’s become more independent and her arm hardly hurts anymore, which used to be one of her main complaints. My mother’s happier now than I’ve seen her in a long time, and there’s nothing that makes me happier.”

“I used to suffer from osteoarthritis and had to take medication to manage the pain. I had a big hump forming on my back and I felt very nervous and anxious. Thanks to Cate, I’ve noticed so many physical and mental improvements. Now I sleep soundly at night and I feel peaceful when I wake up. I can think more clearly, I have more ideas and am more motivated to do things and I feel like I can face problems in a different way now because I’m more confident. I no longer need to take any medication because the osteoarthritis pain is completely gone. Even my friends tell me I look better and I feel happier. What surprised me was having to buy new clothes because the hump on my back is gone!”—MARI AVEDILLO

“I’ve been going to a chiropractor for more than 5 years. I’d tried others but when I found Cate, I really liked how she works and so I have stayed with her. I like that we have the same ideas of how to age well like: having a sense of joy and living less stressfully, accepting the passage of time and my body’s changes and taking the best possible care of myself physically, emotionally, spiritually and mentally. I never miss my visits with Cate and I always leave floating. Now, I sleep much better, have less anxiety and feel less stressed out in my life.”

“I found Cate when I was looking for relief from my back pain and I am eternally grateful for everything she’s helped me with physically as well as the mental stability that she’s brought me. I limped through her door the day of my first visit and I noticed the effects from the very first adjustment when I left and no longer had the pain that had been shooting down my leg for so many days. I’m not afraid of throwing my back out anymore and I can do the things I used to do that had become too painful like playing tennis, which I love and am playing again. I came in like a SEAT 600 and I left like a Ferrari.”—ANDRÉZ JIMÉNEZ
