Matthews, NC

A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care

For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease

For people who are afflicted with dementia or Alzheimer’s, FirstLight Home Care can assist those battling with the fear, sadness, confusion and loneliness that accompany those illnesses. Both the patient and the entire family will benefit from our innovative, in-home dementia care and Alzheimer’s care services.

If you’ve encountered someone with dementia or Alzheimer’s, it doesn’t mean you’ve encountered all people with dementia. People with dementia or Alzheimer’s don’t talk, act, remember and behave the exact same way; it all depends on the stage of dementia and the person’s unique personality.

Person-First Dementia Care

FirstLight Home Care has crafted an original Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s care Program for residents of Matthews, Charlotte, Pineville and the surrounding community that concentrates on the person and not the illness. The program focuses on who the person used to be, not who they are now. This highly individualized and active approach ensures that those suffering from dementia can live meaningful lives.

Our clients will receive a “Who I Am” booklet designed to help FirstLight Home Care Charlotte understand more than just simple personal information. We want to understand what makes your loved one unique by knowing:

  • What makes you feel joy?
  • What inspires you to laughter?
  • Gives you a sense of accomplishment?
  • Annoys you or makes you angry?

Using this information, FirstLight Home Care’s team of coordinators and caregivers create a personalized, specific dementia care or Alzheimer’s care plan for your loved one’s daily needs. In order to assist you through this process, FirstLight Home Care includes you in both the one-on-one consultations and the process of choosing a caregiver. We constantly review our Matthews dementia care services in order to guarantee that your family receives the most rewarding experience possible. To do this, we use review councils, caregiver focus groups and client satisfaction surveys.
