Dementia Care and In Home Care Assistance
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s
At FirstLight Home Care, we understand that dementia affects the entire family. That is why our services are focused on the needs of both the individual with dementia and the family as a whole. Our specialized Atlanta dementia care plans are designed to provide home care assistance to help individuals with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia cope with the devastating effects of the condition that go beyond memory loss, including:
There is no such thing as the typical dementia patient. Each person with dementia experiences different behavioral, cognitive, and physical symptoms based on the progression of the disease and their own unique personalities.
Person-First Dementia Care & Alzheimer’s Care
At FirstLight Home Care Atlanta, we structure our personalized dementia care plans around both who your loved one is now and who they were. By focusing on the person instead of the disease, we help your loved one remain engaged so that they can live a life full of meaning and purpose.
Our Atlanta home care assistance coordinators work with each client to complete a “Who I Am” booklet. This goes beyond the traditional patient history to give us insight into your loved one’s personality. The following are just a few of the questions we ask that help guide our care:
• What makes you happy?
• What makes you laugh?
• What makes you feel accomplished?
• What distresses or frustrates you?
We then use this information to create the plan for your loved one’s daily home care assistance. Since you know your loved one better than anyone else, we encourage and value your input throughout the caregiver selection process and during individual consultations with our Atlanta dementia care coordinators. We realize that needs can change over time as the dementia progresses. We constantly monitor the effectiveness of our caregiving services and the client experience through focus groups, satisfaction surveys, and various advisory councils.
