A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
While dementia is a pervasive disease, each individual will experience it differently and will progress at a different pace. Every person affected still behaves, acts, talks, and remembers differently simply because of who they are as a unique individual.
Because of this reality, we have created our own unique Akron Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care program, which is tailored to the individual we care for, not simply their disease. We incorporate who they were in the past and who they are in the present to shape a truly engaging and personalized approach for their care. Our goal here at FirstLight Home Care of Akron, OH is to ensure everyone affected by this disease is empowered to live out their remaining days with purpose and fulfillment.
Our unique “Who I Am” pamphlet aims to learn so much more than each patient’s basic history. We care deeply about and want to know important things such as:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
This personal information is then assessed by our Dementia and Alzheimer’s Care Coordinators and Caregivers, available to the communities of Akron, North Canton, Medina, and Kent, and is used to build a special care plan that is perfectly tailored to your loved one’s needs.
How does our approach set us apart from other Montgomery Alzheimer’s and dementia care establishments in Akron? We stand by our rigorous caregiver hiring process, happily provide one-on-one consultations, and commit to providing ongoing trainings for our staff. Our Culture of Care permeates all that we do, and we regularly appraise its efficacy using:
- Client Satisfaction Surveys
- Client and Caregiver Focus Groups
- Advisory Councils
