Matt Fisher

Matt Fisher, RN Cognitive Specialist likes to describe himself as, “A lifelong science geek”. His first degree was in electronics and at one point he worked for NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory as a Technician. He worked for 14 years as a Psychiatric RN in hospitals and medical facilities, and in 2016 he shifted his focus and began work as a Home Health RN Cognitive Specialist assisting clients with various forms of dementia. During this time Matt learned that the medications that are typically prescribed for Alzheimer’s Disease do not slow the progression of the illness, and in many cases the side-effects may decrease quality of life. With guidance and support from forward-thinking physicians, Matt assisted hundreds of his patients to reduce medications and eliminate unnecessary medications, often with transformative results.

Matt hosts Alzheimer’s support groups and Parkinson’s support groups at various Assisted Living Facilities in Boise. He enjoys teaching and continues to volunteer his time presenting to staff at Memory Care Units with the goal of helping caregivers have a deeper understanding of dementia and psychiatric symptoms.
