How the Optum differentiator helps communities attract and retain residents

After Eaton Senior Communities resident Steve Auten had bilateral knee surgery, followed by a degenerative spine issue that caused paralysis in his legs, he and his doctors were unsure if he’d ever be able to walk again.

Today, Auten is back on his feet and has a 20-pound terrier rescue dog named Hey that he walks regularly. He’s even been able to achieve his ultimate goal: to take Hey to the mountains to play in the snow.

It was a long recovery. But one that Auten was able to make without leaving his apartment at Eaton Senior Communities in Lakewood, Colorado, thanks to the UHC Care Advantage plan, a special needs plan from Optum.

The plans are proving to be true community differentiators by offering a wide range of in-home
services that focus on:

  • Supporting specific resident needs
  • Extending residents’ independent lifestyle at a minimal cost
  • Helping communities attract and retain residents

Click here to learn why Sarah Schoeder, director of wellness initiatives at Eaton, calls the Optum care model a “value-plus” service that “lessens the burden of residents and family alike” while reducing things like falls and emergency room visits.
