A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
Our dementia care and elderly care plans at FirstLight Home Care are designed for those who suffer from dementia or Alzheimer’s in Grand Blanc, Lapeer, Fenton, and Flint. These plans are intended to help those suffering from the effects associated with these diseases, such as anxiety, depression, confusion, and isolation. Not only are these programs meant to serve the individual suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s, but to help the whole family as well.
At FirstLight Home Care of Greater Genesee County, we are mindful of the fact that each person with dementia or Alzheimer’s is a unique individual. Every person will think, act and speak differently not because of their stage in dementia, but because they have their own characteristics that make them who they are.
Person-First Dementia Care
Because of this, FirstLight Home Care’s unique Dementia Care and Elderly Care program, available to clients throughout Grand Blanc, Lapeer, Fenton, and Flint, focuses on providing care to the person, not the disease. The person-first dementia care plan is structured around who the dementia sufferers were– not just who they are today. Through this unique and personalized approach, we seek to make sure individuals affected by such diseases can live out their lives with a sense of purpose.
That’s why every client’s “Who I Am” booklet is answered to give us more than just a basic history. To understand your loved one better, we’d like to know:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
Using this information, our caregivers can customize your loved one’s dementia care plans to give them the best daily care. We will help to guide you through this process by making sure you are a part of our rigorous caregiver selection and one-on-one consultations. To make sure you are receiving the best dementia care services possible, we consistently evaluate your family experiences through client satisfaction surveys, focus groups, and advisory councils.
