In this informative video, Tim Tholen, CEO and Founder of Kansas City’s Thoughtful Healthcare and its affiliates, looks at the costs associated with caring for a loved one with dementia.
Did you know that 68% of caregivers report making concessions at work because of their caregiving obligations? This means that the caregiver’s duties at home impact their ability to earn money as well. Caregiving is not only expensive, but the responsibility carries time-related costs as well.
That’s why it’s important to figure out the point at which help needs to be considered. More than that, it’s crucial to figure out how many assets are available to help pay for caregiving help.
The earlier you can begin to clarify the planning aspects of caring for a loved one with dementia, the more ready you and your family will be ready for the progression of the disease. We at Thoughtful Care are here to help. Professional care is a phone call away.
