A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
At FirstLight Home Care, we understand that each person with dementia is unique. We customize our Calabasas, Oak Park and Agoura Hills dementia care and elderly care services, based on the needs of your loved one. Not every person will behave the same depending on the severity or stage of dementia. We include the family in our care plans to address their concerns on learning how to handle with common dementia symptoms for both their loved one and themselves.
Person-First Dementia Care
FirstLight Home Care’s awareness to treat each person with dementia individually has allowed us to create our Dementia Care Program. We take into consideration the person that they are and were before the disease and not just the disease on it’s own. Each dementia care and elderly care service plan is personalized to focus on giving back a purpose to each person.
Some questions that we ask are:
- What activities do you enjoy or makes you happy?
- What makes you laugh?
- What activities make you feel accomplished?
- Do you feel stressed, angry, or frustrated?
In cooperation with our dementia care coordinators and elderly care services in Calabasas, Oak Park and Agoura Hills, we include your concerns and your loved one’s responses from the booklet to create an individualized daily care plan. We also include you in the caregiver selection process because we understand that you need to be comfortable with the caregiver selected for your loved one. To know that you have chosen the perfect caregiver, we allow a one-on-one consultation with caregivers to allow you time to make an informed decision. To improve the effectiveness of our programs, we continuously evaluate client and family experiences through client satisfaction surveys, client and caregiver focus groups, and advisory councils. We encourage you to take advantage of these feedback services to assist us in providing the best in care.
FirstLight Home Care of Calabasas serves the communities of Oak Park, Agoura Hills, Topanga, Woodland Hills, West Hills, Tarzana, Northridge and Winnetka with superior dementia care and elderly care services.
