A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
Here at FirstLight Home Care of Charleston, we know that people who are living with Alzheimer’s or dementia face unique challenges in finding and receiving dementia care and home care assistance. We offer specialized care plans to help people handle realities like isolation, depression, anxiety and confusion. As conditions such as dementia often affect the whole family, a comprehensive care plan aims to assist everyone involved.
Just as each person is unique, so is each case of dementia – there is no one way that people will react when faced with this condition. This is why FirstLight is here to help.
Dementia Care That Puts People First
This is all the more reason why FirstLight of Charleston and Mt. Pleasant offers a personalized dementia care and home care assistance program that takes as its focus the person involved, not the condition itself. We take care to involve the person at all stages, which includes who the person was, their likes and dislikes, before encountering dementia. Those living with dementia need to be given a sense of purpose, a way of living with the disease that respects who they are and their dignity.
FirstLight’s “Who I Am” documentation seeks to address so much more than a person’s medical history or stage development – we are looking to get to know your loved one on a personal level. What is it that helps them feel accomplished? What is it that disturbs or frustrates them? What makes them laugh? What does happiness mean to them?
Using this information, our team is able to build a personalized care plan and daily strategy. As their loved one, it is crucial to make sure you and other relatives are involved in all stages through individual consultations and the selection process for caregivers. We regularly conduct surveys with ongoing and previous clients to make sure our programs are innovative and effective, as well as participating in advisory councils and focus groups.
