What To Do After a Loved One Is Diagnosed with Dementia

It’s natural to want answers to all of the questions that follow the news that a loved one has been diagnosed with dementia. There are so many new variables and questions that accompany a diagnosis. Loved ones caring for people diagnosed with dementia will want to know about the diagnosis itself—whether

Parkinson’s Lewy Body or Alzheimer’s. Progressions of diseases can vary, so it’s important to get educated about treatments and new medications. Routines will probably need to be altered, and more support may be needed.

Thoughtful Healthcare and our affiliates have created a video specifically for new caregivers, to help them understand the steps to take once a diagnosis of dementia has been given.

Each family has needs that are unique to their loved one’s diagnosis: no two cases of dementia are alike. This is why Tim Tholen, Founder and CEO of Thoughtful Healthcare, shared his experience, walking viewers through the discovery process, providing answers for families living in Kansas City.

Thoughtful Healthcare is a locally owned, Kansas City metro area in-home care provider here to give answers to all of your questions.
