SENIORSSTRONG SUMMIT 2018 WAS A MAJOR SUCCESS IN MYSTIC ON JUNE 2, 2018
Be Prepared Because Information is Power
The second annual SeniorsStrong Summit 2018 was held at the Mystic Marriott on Saturday, June 2, 2018, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom. It is an annual educational event of The Mystic Geriatrics Institute and the only one of its kind in the country.
Geriatric health is founded on more than physical fitness. Planning ahead with the family is the key to a holistic and healthy quality of life, thus preventing or reducing the stress of elder care. The Summit presenters, who are leaders in the field, addressed financial and legal solutions, social services, and understanding levels of care and caregiving, insight into Alzheimer’s care and optimizing the care for loved ones with memory challenges were among the popular breakout session topics. The morning program also examined the most effective medical care that promotes geriatric health, aging in place, and power to get the care you need if you cannot speak for yourself. This year’s SeniorsStrong Summit spotlighted medical leader Vivian S. Argento, M.D. of Yale –New Haven Health, who will deliver the keynote address entitled, “How to Receive the Care You Want.”
Local residents had a chance to discuss and provide suggestions for future activities and the program was concluded with a luncheon session and screening of the award-winning documentary “Being Mortal.”
The Mystic Geriatric Institute is a local non-profit organization dedicated to addressing the challenging elder needs in the region. To learn about future programs and support the work of Mystic Geriatrics Institute, you can visit the MGI website at www.mysticgeriatricsinstitute.com
