Person-First Dementia Care
At FirstLight Home Care, we believe in seeing people suffering from dementia for who they were before they became afflicted. Our Dementia Care Program is unique, because it focuses on what sets the individual apart from their disease. Our approach to dementia care and elderly care, helps individuals in Glendale, South Pasadena and La Cañada Flintridge, remember who they were before dementia – what they enjoyed and what made them unique. This method creates a life for people with dementia that is infused with joy and purpose, despite their disease.
To begin this program, we provide the family with a “Who I Am” booklet that enables caregivers to engage with your loved one. This goes far deeper than the general history of their life, and asks questions designed to make your loved one stand out. FirstLight caregivers want to know:
- What brings your loved one joy?
- What makes them laugh out loud?
- What makes your loved one feel a sense of pride and accomplishment?
- What causes your loved one to feel frustrated or upset?
These questions provide the basis for your loved one’s individual, unique care plan that will be used on a day-to-day basis. What’s more, you will be able to participate in selecting the highly trained dementia caregiver that will work to ensure your loved one’s quality of life. To ensure this, FirstLight utilizes a broad toolset including councils to advise client care, surveys to assess satisfaction, and focus groups with caregivers and families. Through a series of one-on-one consultations between the family and the caregiver, we will work to create an unforgettable experience for the entire family, including the individual suffering from dementia.
