Dementia Care Services
Truly Personal, Truly Unique
At FirstLight HomeCare, we have developed dementia care plans to help people who are suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's cope with the anxiety, depression, confusion and isolation that is often associated with the disease. Our unique programs for dementia care at home help not only the dementia sufferer, but the family as a whole.
If you have met one person with dementia, you've only met one person. That is, each individual will talk, act, remember, and behave differently, not simply because of what stage of dementia they are in, but because they are who they are.
That's why we've developed a unique Dementia Program—building dementia home care services around the individual, not the disease—incorporating who they were, not just who we see today. It's a personalized and engaging dementia home care approach, where our goal is to make sure those affected by this disease live the rest of their lives with purpose. Many people with dementia want at home care, to keep at least their surroundings familiar in a world suddenly filled with uncertainties.
We provide a "Who I Am" booklet that contains much more than a basic history. We want to understand the intangible things that make your mom or dad who they are. We ask questions like:
- What makes you happy?
- What makes you laugh?
- What makes you feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
Our long term dementia care coordinators and caregivers use this information to build specific and individualized dementia care plans for daily care. To help you throughout the process, we make you a part of our rigorous caregiver selection process and one-on-one consultations. And to ensure that our dementia care services are always evolving to provide the best possible family experiences, we continually evaluate its effectiveness with client satisfaction surveys, client and caregiver focus groups, and advisory councils.
