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: 

Dear Friends of MGI,

  What is it like to be a caregiver ? A caregiver is often in their forties or fifties, most often a female, and usually taking care of an elder parent. Over 50 million people do this work, and most are unpaid. Thirty percent are greater than 65. She often has other responsibilities, such as a job, or caring for the needs of her own children or grandchildren, or her spouse. Each of these responsibilities is an added stressor to her life. These multiple stressors only intensify if the older person has a chronic illness, particularly one that involves behavioral issues.

  Few people are prepared in advance to manage the responsibilities thrust upon them. To help with this the Mystic Geriatrics Institute has developed a program to give caregivers a framework to acquire the knowledge base and obtain the necessary resources. We invite you to join us for a one day conference at the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center on May 14th. To register call the PNC at 860-599-3285, or MGI at 860-857-2110, or register on line at mgisymposium@gmail.com.

  We at MGI are looking forward to seeing you in May. The conference is free of charge. Lunch and beverages are provided. We are grateful to the Pawcatuck Neighborhood Center for their collaboration and support of the conference. We also want to acknowledge the gift of Power of Together that has made it possible for MGI to present this conference free of charge.

Sincerely,

Christopher Morren, MD
President
