KIRKLAND, Wash., June 26, 2012 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Today the non-profit 3in4 Association announces a partnership with CareOptions Online(TM) (COOL(TM)), a web-based service promoting wellness and offering quick, easy access to healthcare services for entire families. The main focus is on mature adults and seniors, but the health and fitness advice applies to children and young adults as well. So do the referral services for medical care, childcare, and other resources important for family health and well-being.

"We're glad to offer COOL to the visitors and supporters of the 3in4 site and movement at no charge," says Jonas Roeser, President of the 3in4 Association, which gives access to the COOL(TM) service through the 3in4 website: http://www.3in4needmore.com.

Key uses for COOL(TM) include:
* Handling medical emergencies.
* Addressing chronic illnesses or disabilities.
* Finding childcare or eldercare services.
* Finding short and long-term care services.
* Planning for the health needs of a child away at college.
* Creating a living will or power of attorney for healthcare documents.
* Staying healthy to prevent illness, injury, or premature need for long-term care.

"In COOL people can find tools, tips, or information to help with almost any health, wellness, or care concern," says Roeser.

The OnLine resources include:
* Search databases for finding anything from a medical specialist to an assisted-living facility, even a pet-boarding service.
* Online calculators for estimating the cost of long-term care in any state, or your "loss of wealth" if you take time off work to personally care for someone.
* A medical reference system providing advisories for myriad concerns ranging from eye conditions to heart problems. There's also a guide to hundreds of medications.
* Question and answer forms for creating a living will or other advanced directive.
* A tool for creating a care-alert card or form.
* An online wellness center helping with everything from nutrition to sleep to emotional health and stress management.

CareOptions OnLine(TM) (COOL(TM)) was designed, developed, and is powered by NavGate(R) Technologies, a division of CareQuest(R), Inc.
