In my line of work as a Professional Daily Money Manager I refer to a diverse collection of individuals and businesses for the various needs of my clients. MSRN is my trusted source for vetted, motivated and caring people to fulfill the needs of my clients.
These needs run the gambit, for example, Senior Handy Services was brought in to install new locks and no trespassing signs at a property of a recently widowed gentleman who requires 24/7 home care companions due to his declining mental status. Not only did Craig send someone to do the work, since the situation was a possible contentious one involving people trying to take up residence in the gentleman’s basement against his wishes, Craig sent a retired Navy SEAL to do the install, reassure the gentleman and make a presence known while posting the signs to hopefully deter the unwanted house mates.
The Option Group and I have worked together on a number of situations where a client has no children and no relatives in the immediate area. We work together to create a dome of protection for the client encompassing medical management, quality of life, financial and insurance oversight and ensuring the client’s end of life wishes are being set up and then ultimately fulfilled.
Several years ago I joined this organization when it was National Aging In Place Council. At the time, I had an emergency response systems business. I thought the name of the organization was a perfect fit for my business.
In 2014, NAIPC became our own entity and incorporated under the name of Maryland Senior Resource Network (MSRN).
Now I have many trusted resources to send people when they are in need of help with things like; where to go for a companion or aid for a parent; who to talk with about a facility that is right for their parent, grandparent; who to recommend for handyman services or even who can help a senior with their checkbook.
All these people are known to me personally and I find trustworthy and honest. The resources in MSRN are all high-end professionals, who I find I would not hesitate to refer a potential client to.

Valuable relationships that will serve as resources for me!
MSRN is a select group of professionals who provide services to meet the variety of needs of older adults. When I attended my first MSRN meeting as a guest, I was astounded by the amount of energy in the room and the excitement the members had about their businesses and MSRN. I was welcomed immediately and began making connections instantly.
I have only been a member for a short period of time, but have already made valuable relationships that will serve as resources for me as I continue to grow my company. There is a sense of community and mutual respect at MSRN that gives me a feeling that the members are all there not only for the benefit of their companies but also for the benefit of their clients.
Learned valuable information from a member's presentation!
A longtime client of mine called this week worried about her elderly mother. She had been living independently and doing well until a recent hospitalization. During and after the hospitalization, however, her memory and ability to care for herself diminished significantly.
Thanks to Michelle Fritch’s presentation at a recent MSRN meeting, I knew that medication during changes during hospitalization can unmask or even cause these types of declines.
Within minutes, I emailed Dr. Fritch’s contact information to my client with the confidence that her mother would be evaluated by a dedicated and trustworthy professional.
