Personalized Dementia Care Services Throughout Southern Maine
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
If you have met one person with dementia, you’ve only met one person. That is, each individual will talk, act, remember, and behave differently, not simply because of what stage of dementia they are in, but because they are who they are.
Person-First Dementia Care
That’s why FirstLight has developed its unique Dementia Program—building care around the individual, not the disease—incorporating who they were, not just who we see today. It’s a personalized and engaging approach, where our goal is to make sure those affected by this disease live the rest of their lives with purpose.
Each client’s “Who I Am” booklet is completed to answer much more than basic history… We want to understand things about your loved one such as:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
Care Coordinators and Caregivers then use this information to build a specific and individualized plan for your loved one’s daily care.
How else is this different from other home care companies? From a rigorous caregiver selection process to on-going training and one-on-one consultations, we not only implement the plan throughout our Culture of Care, but we continue to evaluate its effectiveness with:
- Client Satisfaction Surveys
- Client and Caregiver Focus Groups
- Advisory Councils
