About 3 years ago, MSRN had a Patient Advocate named, Erica, as a member. Erica is a Nurse. I had two friends who desperately needed her help. I arranged for Erica and the friends to connect and the friends have thanked me over and over for the referral. Erica resolved their health situations that were current at that time. They, in turn, referred Erica to other people. A good success story!
I joined MSRN more than two years ago. The reasons I joined were to better serve my clients as a Planning and Elder Law Attorney and to continue to build my team of resources that can also further assist the clients when needed.
MSRN has exceeded my expectations concerning both goals. It is however, important to remember that MSRN is no different than any other group you may join. The more active you become, the more benefit you will receive.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, I have made new friendships among the members of MSRN.
Helped us through some difficult family issues
We had no idea where to find the right fit for my mother in her final days. Deborah, whom I had met earlier at a networking event, was the person I contacted. Deb worked with us through the entire process, including some difficult family issues.
She was professional at all times, but also was sympathetic with our situation, and lined up the perfect place for mom. I cannot emphasize strongly enough how helpful Deborah was.
This difficult decision was made much easier because we found the right person to get us through the myriad of options out there. When the need arises, I cannot think of a better person to help you with the tough decisions that need to be made at times like this.

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.
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.
