About Mystic Geriatrics Institute

MGI is a non-profit organization with a mission to make a significant difference in improving the lives of the elderly and to make our region a center of excellence for elder well-being through specialized health care and education.

A letter from our President:

We have been very busy at Mystic Geriatrics Institute this month. Our program to partner Stonington High School students with senior citizens in local facilities to create poetry has attracted three outstanding students. We will meet for our first session on February 20th. Melanie Greenhouse has worked with the staff at the high school to get this project off the ground.

I have been in contact with Joe Courtney’s office. His aide, Emma King, was excited about our program to manage the medical care of isolated senior citizens and disabled veterans in a program based on Dr. Feltes model of managing patients in their homes. She invited us to join an upcoming staff meeting to share this idea and other ideas with them. We hope to meet with them in early March.

In our Elderly Economy Project, to create a means for senior citizens seeking information and guidance to access the appropriate businesses and institutions in our region, Robin Ely and Sandra Sharr have connected with the Mystic Chamber of Commerce and the Eastern Connecticut Chamber of Commerce. We hope to develop a broader information base on our website. We look forward to creating liaisons with these organizations to focus on the needs of the elderly.

We have developed an educational program consisting of seven modules. Its purpose is to guide caregivers in the care of their family members. We hope to record these programs and make them accessible on our website.

We have strengthened our Facebook site and website, and receive regular requests from regional organizations to promote their programs. 

If you have questions or wish to donate to help us further our progress please contact our website: mysticgeriatricsinstitute.com
