Online Tool Assesses Senior Care Options
Are you concerned about your loved one as he or she gets older? Are you thinking your situation isn’t ideal right now or might not be in the future, but you don’t know what senior care options are available?
CarDon & Associates provides residents with the best senior living options and personalized care, and they are now offering a free and anonymous online survey to help individuals answer the question: Is it time to get help?
CarDon is the only senior living company in Indiana using this 23-question, five-minute online assessment tool from Roobrik, a platform combining decision science and user-friendly technology to help older adults and their families make informed decisions about the future.
You can check out the care assessment at https://cardon.us/roobrik/.
The assessment leads people through a logical progression of questions to make them comfortable and feel heard while pulling out valuable information. It meets people where they are in the decision-making process, engaging older adults and families who are unsure about senior care options, helping them learn more about their or their loved one’s needs and which options are the best fit.
When you are done taking the personalized quiz, you receive a free Care Fit Report, which includes the following:
The Care Fit Report also makes recommendations about the best living options, including in-home care and senior living communities where independent living, assisted living, skilled nursing and memory care are offered.
Depending on your comfort and readiness to take the next step, you can decide whether or not you want to be contacted by one of CarDon’s care specialists — or you can keep it completely anonymous.
The Roobrik online tool should be used for education and information gathering, not as a substitute for professional medical advice, diagnosis or treatment. The CarDon specialists can help steer you in the right direction when it comes to talking to your family and professional care providers about moving forward.
With 20 communities owned, operated or managed in the Midwest, CarDon has plenty of senior living options, offering independent living and assisted living as well as rehabilitation, long-term care and memory care.
Choosing senior living is a big step, and CarDon & Associates helps offer the right care in the right place with the right support. Start today by taking the survey at: https://cardon.us/roobrik/.

Every year, I make my way to the Hamilton County Courthouse to get the latest information on the election results. However this year, due to COVID-19 I got to sit at the Hamilton County Fair Grounds. It was a different atmosphere, but thanks to the clerk’s office the technology was effective and quick. I was stunned to find out that there were over 37,000 mail-in ballots this year. Below are some results of importance to the Hamilton County business community:
On the federal side, with Congresswoman Susan Brooks retiring her House seat, Republican and State Senator Victoria Spartz won the primary with 40% of the vote in a very crowded field of candidates. On the democratic side, former state representative and candidate for Lieutenant Governor, Christina Hale won her primary. This will setup an interesting November election, with a huge media focus and likely significant national dollars pouring into each campaign.
At the state level, both Representative Tony Cook and Senator John Ruckelshaus won their respective primaries. Representatives Donna Schaibley, Chuck Goodrich, Jerry Torr, and Speaker of the House Todd Huston did not have primary opponents. The open seat for House District 88 (held by former Speaker of the House Brian Bosma) was won by attorney Chris Jeter won the District 88 race. The District 20 Senate Race formerly held by Victoria Spartz was won by businessman Scott Baldwin.
Local races around the county included the county commissioner and council at-large races. Current County Commissioner Steve Dillinger won his race on Tuesday. There will be some new faces on the council in 2021. The County Council At-Large race winners included Sue Maki, Steve Nation, and Brad Beaver. Both Maki and Nation will be new to the council. Below are the percentages for this race:
As we head into the November general election, keep a lookout for events, information, and more on federal, state, and local races. Finally, remember to mark your calendars for Tuesday, November 3rd – voting is the way you can ensure that your vote is heard!

OneZone and Ascend Indiana to attract talent to Hamilton County by connecting employers with college students looking for jobs and internships
(Carmel and Fishers, Ind., May 19, 2020) – OneZone, the Chamber of Commerce for Fishers and Carmel, Ind., and Ascend Indiana, the talent and workforce development initiative of the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership, are announcing a collaboration to help college students find jobs – and employers to find talent – during these challenging times.
OneZone is offering their employer members an opportunity to join the Ascend Network, a software platform and team of recruiters that connect students and recent graduates with an associate degree, bachelor’s degree or certificate to Indiana jobs and internships.
“Hamilton County remains a great place to work, and as employers prepare for the impending workforce recovery, we want to make sure they have all the tools necessary to meet their employment needs, and that includes having available early-in-career talent. Our member, Ascend Indiana, is helping us to do that,” said Jack Russell, interim president, OneZone.
To participate, OneZone members can submit information through a short form on the OneZone website: onezonecommerce.com. Employers will then be connected to Ascend to begin the process of sharing their open jobs and internships with students and recent graduates.
“While employers and students are facing unprecedented challenges, the Ascend Network is a unique approach to aligning talent with opportunities in the region, now and in the future,” said Jason Kloth, president and CEO, Ascend Indiana. “Students from 27 Indiana higher education institutions have joined the Network, and they have submitted 13,000 applications to employers for open positions.”
OneZone is hoping to register more than 25 employer members by the end of the year.

Guiding Principles: Value-Based Marketing and Diagnostic Selling
We implement this by insisting that we always provide the user with something of true stand-alone value before we ever attempt to move forward with any sales-like gesture. The key here is to make sure the value-offer is truly beneficial to the consumer without any further engagement. This approach seems counter-intuitive to some, but there's a reason this methodology consistently produces two, three, and four times the average return on ad spend across campaigns worldwide.
Creating True "Stand-Alone" Value
Duckworth Design is a web design & development agency with a general love for digital marketing and online advertising. We are strongly guided by the principles of value-based marketing and diagnostic discovery before prescriptive selling. These ethical advertising methods are used within ours and our clients' websites and digital marketing campaigns.
Why Value Always Wins
The reason is a bit of a cliche: people really do buy from people they know, like, and trust. What creates more familiarity, likability, and trustworthiness at the very beginning of an advertisement? A campaign from a computer-repair company that only ever brags about being "The Best/Cheapest in Town" or a campaign from that same company with a downloadable PDF that gives you "12 Things to Check Before You Get Your Computer Serviced or Repaired." Our vote is in. Value always wins.
Why We Should Be Focusing on Creating Value in Our Advertising
This guiding principle is becoming more crucial than ever. Selling ethically and working to properly aid and serve your potential customers before money ever enters the conversation will create room for more loyal, engaged, and satisfied clientele. So when you're marketing and having sales conversations during this global crisis, practice empathy and aim first to help the other person. Help them discover if they need your product or service. If not, assist them by pointing them in the direction of other resources, people, or ideas that can ultimately end their struggle—market how you'd like to be marketed to. Sell how you'd like to be sold to.
