My grandmother was my heart she loved the outside and could cook her behind off. I remember her always telling me stories and always having breakfast ready for me. My mother worked so my grandmother helped in raising me. At the age of around 12 my grandmother, who was probably in her early 60’s at the time, started to do a lot of things that were unlike her. For example she would leave the water running in the sink, or call me by my mothers name. She seemed to forget a lot of simple things. Now at the time I was just thinking this may be old age and I sure hope I don’t forget things when I hit 60. My mother never noticed anything either. When I would mention that grandma did something odd she would just say oh she is just up in age.
When we realized that my grandma had Alzheimer’s disease it was too late someone that we trusted came in and discovered she was losing her memory and wiped thousands of dollars out of her account. We were not able to recoup anything because my grandma had signed things and at that time we had no proof she had dementia. After we got her checked out and diagnosed properly she went from just doing odd things to literally not being able to function on her own. It changed our whole lives because someone had to be with my grandma 24 hours a day. She could not be left alone at all.
We already have to worry about our loved ones, we shouldn’t have to worry about our employees too. Unitedhealthcare has created a healthcare shopping experience that allows employers to confidently take care of their employees, so those people can focus on their loved ones at home!
My Mother In Law now has a touch of Alzheimers and I am ready to provide her with my time because I don’t have to focus on how my employees receive health benefits! Here are some warning signs that I found with my grandmother that helped me with my Mother In Law……..
- Loss of Memory ~ My grandmother didn’t know which child was which. She knew her kids name but she would call my mother my aunts name. She started to forget the days of the week and she didn’t remember her own name at times
- Problems with speaking or writing ~ My grandmother stopped writing in her bible and that was unheard of she always wrote in that bible. She also stopped speaking all together for about a month
- Poor Judgment ~ Now we all make poor judgment but if I ask you for 50 dollars and you give me 500 dollars that’s way beyond poor judgment. My grandmother lost her life savings because we did not get her checked out in time
- Changes in mood and personality ~ I knew something was up when she started liking my grandpa again…..they had been divorced for over 10 years and she detested him lol
All in all we did not see the signs early enough and we wished that we did. We could have stepped in sooner and saved her some money. UnitedHealthcare has done that for small business owners….they stepped in and saved the day!
Your employees shouldn’t have to worry about their health and the health of those that they love. If I am taken care of, my employees should be too! Take a worry off of them by providing benefits that they need so that they can be healthy and productive. With me owning my own business and making sure my employees are taken care of…I can focus my attention on my Mother In Law. Healthy employees are productive and a part of that health comes from knowing that they are taken care of so that they can be present at home with their family and take care of their loved ones needs. UnitedHealthcare has created an online shopping experience that allows small business owners to quickly choose and purchase health care for their company. You can…….
Choose medical Plans and see all the plans that are offered based on your location
You can submit employees information so that they don’t have to do it themselves
You can even set your own pricing! Let’s talk about pricing because that is the main factor when it comes to healthcare. How does UnitedHealthcare provide better pricing information? You can determine the price you pay per employee and they pay the difference. Your quote is specific to your business based on whom you plan to insure. The best part though is that your business cost will remain the same regardless of which plan your employees choose.
