The world is taking steps forward to help us care for and prevent the effects of Alzheimer’s and Dementia. Part of our effort at Kemper House Central Ohio to provide the best care possible is to also stay on the cutting edge of technology. That includes technology and improvements in the detection of Alzheimer’s to help people get the care they need earlier. With earlier detection comes better care and helping people mitigate some of the symptoms of Alzheimer’s. That is why we want you to know about Cognivue.
Cognivue is the first FDA approved computerized test that can detect early signs of Alzheimer’s and other cognitive impairments.This is a vital resource in keeping our cognitive health in the best shape possible. With early detection, we are able to better take care of ourselves by becoming more aware of what we can do to help. Perhaps it’s about eating more brain healthy foods such as seafood and fresh fruits and vegetables while being conscious of the amount of sugar, salt and preservatives we are putting in our bodies and drastically cutting back. Or maybe it’s about taking care of your heart health with various exercises that can help make a big difference in the way our brains function every day.
Cognivue has a number of benefits including:
- Quick and painless – No need for invasive tests that take hours to conduct and weeks to get back to you. Cognivue can be done at your doctor’s office or Kemper House location in 10 minutes and gives you the information you need almost immediately
- Testing different aspects of cognition – Cognivue tests various parts of cognition in order to give you an idea of exactly what effects are happening and what are the best ways to counteract them. Cognivue tests Motor Control, Visual Processing, Perception, and Memory.
- Simple score – Once you’ve completed your test, you get an easy to understand score with cutoffs to help you understand your level of risk and cognitive impairment. No need for long drawn out explanations or PhD to understand where you cognitive health is. An easy foundation can help you get exactly what you need from your doctor.
- Accepted by Medicare – Many insurance companies will cover Cognivue, including Medicare! This is immensely helpful in making sure that you are covered and can get the information you need on your cognitive health before it’s too late.
Our biggest mission is to see the end of Alzheimer’s and Dementia.
