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.
Trusted MSRN resources for brainstorming and problem-solving
Having the MSRN team of professionals at my fingertips is a valuable asset to me and my clients. I never know from day to day what unique situation will pop up with my clients. Having trusted sources to reach out to for either brainstorming on how to solve a problem for a client or direct service from one of these resources is a treasured tool in my toolbox.
When I was in the Emergency Response Systems business as a member of MSRN, I had several referrals from other members. Those referrals represented trust from my fellow members.

Melissa Barnickel made the purchase of my long term care insurance a pleasant experience! She was very kind and really took the time to explain and answer all my concerns/questions that myself and my son had. Quickly responded when I emailed her, was always there for me. I truly appreciate all she and her office staff did to make this process as easy as possible.
I have been a member of MSRN for two years now. I have always wanted to extend my business to service the senior citizen community and being a member of MSRN has afforded me that opportunity in a trusting and credible manner.
In my two years of being with the organization, I have acquired ten new clients of which three have been repeat customers several times.
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.
