A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
If you’re in need of specialized, highly professionally and trained dementia care or home care assistance for your loved one in Greeley, Fort Collins, or surrounding areas, who suffers from either Alzheimer’s or dementia, you can count on FirstLight Home Care. We have programs that can help your loved one cope with feeling of isolation, depression, frustration, anxiety – all of which are symptoms associated with these diseases. Moreover, our services are geared towards help your whole family, as well as the patient.
If you have encountered a person with dementia before, remember, he/she is just one individual. The disease affects people differently – the behavioral pattern when it comes to talking, remembering things, etc. will always be different person to person. That isn’t because of the progression of the disease, but rather, it is because of who they are.
Person-First Dementia Care
This is exactly why FirstLight Home Care has focused on establishing a precision-based dementia care and home care assistance program that caters to the individual needs of the patients in Greeley, Fort Collins, and surrounding Northern Colorado communities. We focus on administering unique and enhanced dementia care for the patient – instilling quality care tactics around the individual, not just the disease – personalizing and prioritizing his/her wellbeing and becoming more engaged. Our objective is to ensure the individual spends the rest of their life living with purpose.
Every client of ours completes “Who I Am” booklet designed to shed light on more life aspects rather than just their basic history. Our goal is to gain a comprehensive understanding of your loved one’s needs and preferences. For example:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
This information is utilized by our trained coordinators and home care specialists to create unique and focused dementia care and home care assistance plans for day-to-day care in Greeley, Fort Collins, and throughout Northern Colorado. These plans are individualized and are designed to comprehensively help you progress in a timely and safe manner. For added support, we include you in our caregiver process – also offering one-on-one consultations. Moreover, we have made it a point to constantly evolve our dementia care programs for added effectiveness and ease. To accomplish this, we consistently evaluate and analyze each program’s effectiveness using surveys to gauge client satisfaction, form focus groups involving caregivers and clients, and create advisory councils.
Our care services are available throughout all of Northern Colorado, including Greeley, Windsor, Loveland, Fort Collins, and Estes Park.
