On My Mind: Dealing with Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease

On My Mind: Dealing with Dementia and Alzheimer’s Disease

Over the last year, my sister and I helped our mom move to Madison from Rockford, Ill. where she lived for the last 40 years. She’s 88 and has an array of health concerns; we all wanted to live closer together. While we knew that she was having some short-term memory issues, we didn’t realize until she moved that she had dementia, and perhaps Alzheimer’s.

A True Story of How Cost and Quality Information Made a Difference for One Employee

Paul Roelke

By Paul Roelke, member services advisor

I’d like to share a story about how cost and quality information
can make a difference in the lives of your employees.

Before The Alliance introduced its Find a Doctor tool, we shared
cost and quality information through our QualityCounts®
program. I was at a benefit fair held by an employer in the Madison
area when I shared the big differences in costs charged by
different hospitals, clinics and imaging facilities for tests like
CTs and MRI scans.
