A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
We’ve built our Dementia Care program around the individual – recognizing that every person is unique and dementia affects each person differently. No two individuals will behave, talk, or act the same because they are who they are.
Person-First Dementia Care
Our Leesburg Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s Care Program is a unique caregiving program that we developed with our senior clients in mind. Our program aims to retain the individual personality of each client we serve and to give patients continued purpose in life, even though their minds are changing and they don’t feel like the same person they were in earlier years.
Each client completes a “Who I Am.” Booklet so we can gain a better understanding of your loved one’s unique personality such as:
- What makes you laugh?
- What are you doing when you are most happy?
- What frustrates you?
- What makes you sad?
- What makes you feel proud?
With these questions we are hoping to gain insight into the individual and to retain as much as that person as possible as he or she lives with dementia. We incorporate these answers into an individualized Alzheimer’s care and Dementia Care plan that our caregivers use with your loved one during every visit.
Our Leesburg and Winchester Dementia Care plans strive to make clients feel loved, honored and respected, and we continue to evaluate the success of our plans through:
- Advisory councils
- Focus groups with Clients and Caregivers
- Client Satisfaction Surveys
