A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
Dementia is an illness that manifests itself differently in each individual it affects. This is because of the simple reason that each person is different from the other. They way one person with dementia talks, remembers or behaves will never be the same in which another person does those same things. The stage of the disease doesn’t matter; it’s just because the person is unique.
With this principal characteristic of dementia in mind, FirstLight Home Care Columbia has created specialized dementia care and elderly care services. These programs center on the individual and not the disease he or she is affected by. It imbibes the core qualities of the person, not what the disease has turned them into. Our main aim here is to instill a sense of purpose and meaning in the lives of those affected with dementia, and use a personalized, engaging way to do so.
Each client needs to complete a “Who I Am” booklet which aims to procure background information about them. We ask more relevant questions to understand things such as:
- What gives you a sense of accomplishment?
- What makes you happy?
- What makes you laugh?
- Why do you get frustrated or distressed?
This information is then used by our Dementia Care Coordinators and Caregivers to create a customized plan for everyday care of your loved one’s Alzheimer’s or dementia care services.
You might ask how we are different from any other Columbia dementia care or elderly care services. We are unique because of our Culture of Care – a one of a kind system through which we carry out an extensive selection of caregivers, training processes and one-on-one consultations. Even so in doing this we carry out evaluation through the following:
- Client Satisfaction Surveys
- Client and Caregiver Focus Groups
- Advisory Councils
