Trusted Senior Care Throughout Grand Junction & Montrose
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
We understand that every person with dementia is unique, and each individual is just that; an individual with dementia. Everyone will behave differently, from their speech and action to their memory, not just depending on what stage of dementia they are in, but because they are their own person, and always have been.
FirstLight’s unique Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care Program is tailored to the individual, not the disease, and incorporates who they were in addition to the person we see in the present moment. Available to those in Grand Junction, Mesa, Montrose, and Delta, this engaging approach is highly personal, and we strive to ensure that those affected with dementia are able to live out the remainder of their days with purpose.
We want to understand so much more than your loved one’s basic history…each client’s “Who I Am” pamphlet is thoroughly completed to include things like:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
These answers are then used to create an individualized plan for your loved one’s daily care needs, built by our specialized Dementia Care Coordinators and Caregivers.
This approach is different from other Mesa Montgomery dementia and Alzheimer’s care programs, and it’s not only because of our rigorous caregiver selection procedures, one-on-one conferences, and on-going education. We implement the plan across our Culture of Care, and continually appraise its effectiveness using:
- Client Satisfaction Surveys
- Client and Caregiver Focus Groups
- Advisory Councils
