A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
Here at FirstLight Home Care of Chandler we have a saying, “If you have met one person with dementia, you’ve only met one person”. We value what each individual in our Dementia Program has to say, whether they are able to remember what was said or not. We know that each individual will talk, act, remember, and behave differently from another person, even if they are in the same stage of dementia, because a person is unique, even when they have dementia.
That’s why FirstLight has developed its unique Dementia Care Program which builds care around the individual, not the disease. We incorporate aspects of who that person is and who they were in the past. We see past who the person before us appears to be in order to provide personalized dementia care for the individual. Our approach to dementia care is personalized and engaging, because 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 questions much deeper than basic history because 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 dementia and Alzheimer’s care plan for your loved one’s daily care.
How else is this different from other Chandler dementia care companies? From a rigorous caregiver selection process to an on-going training and one-on-one consultation program, we not only implement this plan throughout our Culture of Care, but we continue to evaluate its effectiveness with:
- Client Satisfaction Surveys
- Client and Caregiver Focus Groups
- Advisory Councils
