After a diagnosis of dementia, it’s natural to want answers to all of the questions that follow the news. It can be overwhelming, and there is a steep learning curve. This is why 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.

Every family has different needs, and no two cases of dementia are alike. But Tim Tholen, Founder and CEO of Thoughtful Healthcare, lends his the experience, walking viewers through the discovery process, giving answers for questions that families living in Kansas City might not have considered to ask about living with dementia.
