Upper Marlboro, MD

A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care

For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease

At FirstLight Home Care of Bowie, Upper Marlboro, and Clinton, we have developed dementia care and elderly 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 these conditions.  Our unique programs for dementia care services at home help not only the dementia sufferer, but also the entire family.

It is difficult to generalize about people suffering from dementia.  We are all unique individuals.  Each person will talk, react, remember, and behave differently, not simply because of their stage of dementia, but because they are who they are.

Person-First Dementia Care

That is why FirstLight Home Care has developed its unique, personalized Dementia Care Program, which builds dementia care around the individual, not the condition.  This program incorporates who the person was, what he or she valued and cherished, and not simply who we see today.  We use a personalized and engaging approach; our goal is to make sure those affected by this illness live the rest of their lives in comfort, safety, and with dignity.

Each client is asked to complete a “Who I Am” booklet so that we can better understand and serve him or her.  We want to understand the personality, likes and dislikes, and individual characteristics of your loved one:

  • What makes them happy?
  • What makes them laugh?
  • What helps them feel good about themselves?
  • What gives them a feeling of accomplishment?
  • What do they enjoy?
  • What do they like to talk about?
  • What makes them feel secure?
  • What distresses or frustrates them?

Our dementia care and elderly care coordinators and caregivers in Bowie, Upper Marlboro, and Clinton use this information to build specific and individualized dementia care plans for daily use.

We want you to work with us throughout the process; we want you to be a part of our rigorous selection process and one-on-one consultations.  To ensure that our dementia care services are always evolving to provide the best possible client and family experiences, we continually evaluate FirstLight’s effectiveness by administering client satisfaction surveys, family satisfaction surveys, staff observations, conducting client and caregiver focus groups, and employing advisory councils.  We are constantly using this data to tweak our services and improve our interactions.  We share this information with family caregivers to that they may understand our methods, practices, and goals to improve our services.  If you would like to learn more about our dementia care and elderly care services in Bowie, Upper Marlboro, and Clinton, please contact our friendly team today!
