A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
Individuals suffering with dementia or Alzheimer’s often experience worrisome behavioral symptoms like anxiety, depression, and confusion. Social isolation is also a cause for concern. To combat these challenges, FirstLight Home Care has developed a unique, family-centered dementia care and elderly care program in Scranton and Dunmore, which delivers home care solutions through participation from clients and their families.
The effects of dementia can vary from person to person, with each individual acting differently. Behavioral issues, confusion, and memory lapses can be indicative of the sufferer’s stage of dementia, but it’s more likely that they’re just living in their own reality.
Person-First Dementia Care
Hence, this was the catalyst for FirstLight’s Dementia Care Program—we shift the focus to the patient, rather than the disease. This program is designed to be a personalized, engaging strategy to cultivate care based on the individual as a whole person, ensuring that they live with purpose and dignity.
In our client’s “Who I Am” booklet, we look for pertinent information within the booklet to learn more about your loved one, and not just medical history. Here’s what we want to learn about our clients:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
When the booklet is completed, our dementia care coordinators and caregivers create a personalized dementia care and elderly care plan for the client in Scranton or Dunmore. To facilitate the process, we invite families to be part of our extensive caregiver selection process, which includes one-on-one consultations to select the best caregiver according to your needs.
We regularly test the effectiveness of our dementia care services through feedback from client satisfaction surveys, focus groups involving the client and caregiver, and from advisory groups. Our vision guarantees that our dementia care services surpass expectations and continuously evolve.
