Peace of mind for the caregiver…

Empowering caregivers with information to assist loved ones in disease management and preparation.

Cognitive testing is often performed too late when cognitive functions are moderate or severely impaired. Through routine screening, you can eliminate uncertainty about cognitive function.

Cognitive impairment may occur as a result of a variety of causes and manageable underlying conditions related to but not limited to cardiovascular and/or metabolic conditions, sleep disorders, hormonal imbalances, depression, chronic pain, post-concussion, post-stroke, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, Parkinson’s disease, ADHD, autism, and neurological, focal, vision and hearing impairment, or chronic conditions such as type-2 diabetes. Cognitive impairment may also be a result of long-term poor lifestyle choices such as substance abuse, sedentarism, and unhealthy diets.

Cognitive impairment is not a normal part of aging.  As we know, cognitive issues are the hallmark of dementias, eg. Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body’s, vascular and others. Alzheimer’s disease is a significant, growing issue for the entire healthcare industry and directly affects patients, caregivers, providers and payers. Over 5.7 million people are living with Alzheimer’s disease and the number is expected to triple by 2050. While there is no cure, early diagnosis and proper disease management are key to patient’s overall health and quality of life. Studies show that a healthy diet, exercise, occupational therapy and other lifestyle changes involving patients and caregivers may potentially delay disease progression. The earlier the testing, the earlier the patient is diagnosed and managed appropriately.

Cognivue is currently being used primarily by physicians, neurologists, psychiatrists, geriatricians, pain and sleep specialists, optometrists, audiologists and retail pharmacy. Many employers are including Cognivue in their employee wellness programs and offering cognitive screening at their health and wellness fairs. It is commonly administered during wellness visits and often used to obtain a baseline score. Physicians often use it as part of the overall patient work up and can create a customized plan with patients and their families for a continued course of action if needed.

Caring for someone with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease is often overwhelming. As a caregiver it’s important that you have a support network to take care of your own well being.
