Clients Unsure Of Their Cognitive Capabilities?
Here’s How They Can Test It!

Currently, there are 5.4 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s, and 1 in 7 older adults is living with some form of dementia or cognitive impairment in general.

Cognitive skills are the core skills our brains use to think, read, learn, remember, reason, and pay attention. Working together, they take incoming information and move it into the bank of knowledge used every day at school, work and in life.

Cognitive impairment can be caused by aging, illness, emotional stress, depression, medications, or other unknown factors. Dementia is a gradual deterioration of intellectual faculties and memory, usually due to an organic disorder of the brain. Alzheimer’s is the most common form of dementia and causes progressive destruction of brain cells which leads to increasingly severe declines in memory, thinking, and reasoning.

CareOptions provides an important Cognitive Assessment as a preliminary step in identifying any signs of cognitive impairments like those in dementia and Alzheimer’s.

If your clients have concerns about themselves, a family member or friend, recommend they log in to with their Member Passcode to take the early detection Cognitive Asssessment. If concerns are well-founded, the test results will advise them to contact a medical professional for a review. Early detection is vital in getting proper treatment and care.

Now Clients Can Find It All In One Place

CareOptions maintains more than 2.2 million care resources that allows your clients to search for a broad range of care services anywhere in the nation. Most importantly, we maintain these resources all in one place. They are free of ads and care providers do not pay to be listed. We list them all to give clients unbiased information so they can search with ease and convenience. There is nothing else like it anywhere.

These resources are divided into 5 different categories so it’s simple to search and locate precisely the type of care provider or facility your clients are looking for.

Invite your clients to check out the Search for Resources application within CareOptions, so they’ll remember this valuable resource when they themselves, or their family, needs it.

Is Your Client’s Local Hospital Dangerous?

There is a growing problem in our hospitals today – many people are acquiring infections they didn’t have when they were admitted. CareOptions maintains and makes available important background information on most hospitals in the United States. Now your clients can find out how specific hospitals rate on spreading infections to other patients, also known Hospital-Acquired Conditions (HAC).

An HAC is a condition, disease, infection or other type of medical complication that happened because of a recent stay in a hospital, and was not part of or caused by the original illness or condition that prompted the hospital stay in the first place.

Many of the hospital listings in CareOptions are rated annually and given an HAC “score” from 1 through 10, with 10 being the worst and indicating the hospital had a greater rate of patient harm for acquired infections or complications.

Urge your clients not to wait until hospital care is needed! Clients can sign up for access to CareOptions, and can check out the hospitals in their area (or anywhere in the country) right away! Knowing this information can help your clients make safer and more informed health care decisions, which can have a positive impact on themselves and their loved ones.

CareOptions: A valuable gift to share now

According to multiple recent studies, a staggering 2 out of every 3 Americans do not have a completed Advance Directive. If this applies to your clients, how can you assist in ensuring their health care wishes are honored if they are unable to communicate? With CareOptions, your clients can prepare Advance Directives for themselves and their entire family — at NO charge!

An Advance Directive – which includes Health Care Power of Attorney documents and/or Living Wills – is a gift your clients can give to their families. Such directives will avoid forcing family members into making potentially devastating and painful decisions about your clients’ care, and possibly even decisions that may not honor your clients’ wishes.

CareOptions has made it convenient and easy to create an Advance Directive. Our newest feature allows your client to directly email these documents to their family, physician, or anyone they choose to ensure that those who need to know their wishes, will.

Help your clients give their families the peace-of-mind knowing their most personal wishes will be honored — give your clients CareOptions so they can prepare their Advance Directive today!

Help your clients make their home safe

Staying independent and living at home is immportant to your clients and their older family members. CareOptions can help with that.

In the U.S. one in every three seniors over the age of 65 falls each year. And falls and home accidents are some of the most common reasons why seniors end up hospitalized or need to move to alternative living facilities like a nursing home.

Help your clients avoid this by urging them to take the Home Safety Assessment within CareOptions. This exclusive, popular assessment walks consumers through a series of questions specifically about THEIR home. After the questions are answered, it will compute specific solutions to fix identified safety risks.

Encourage your clients to take the Home Safety Assessment – it’s one of the easiest yet most important assessments they can take to remain safely in their homes.

Your clients can stay in their own home

Whether for your client or one of their family members, the ability to live in one’s own home for as long, as confidently, and as comfortably as possible is important — this is termed “Aging in Place.”

CareOptions provides the Aging in Place Technology Watch blog, an application that families can use to find tools to help them maintain their independence.

The Aging in Place Technology Watch blog has been quoted in The Wall Street Journal, The NY Times, USA Today, MoneyWatch  and US News & World Report.

Invite your clients to check out the Aging in Place Technology Watch application in the feature section within CareOptions. This, and other CareOptions features, can help keep your clients and their family members where they want to be as they age — at home!
