Personalized Hudson Valley Dementia Care Services
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
If you have met one person with dementia, you’ve only met one person. That is, each individual will talk, act, remember, and behave differently, not simply because of what stage of dementia they are in, but because they are who they are.
Person-First Dementia Care
With this uniqueness in mind, we at FirstLight Home Care, serving the Hudson Valley, have developed our own Dementia Care Program. With our approach, we create Alzheimer’s and dementia care around the individual person rather than just the disease itself. We include who they were, not just the person that we can see now. This engaging and personalized plan has the goal of making sure that those we care for who have dementia are able to have a purpose for the rest of their lives.
To do this, we use the “Who I Am” booklet. It is filled out by each client and gives us well beyond a simple life history. We seek to know things about your loved one like:
- What are the parts of life that make you the happiest?
- What makes you laugh and smile?
- What makes you feel a sense of accomplishment?
- What kinds of things bother you or make you feel upset?
Our Dementia Care Caregivers and Coordinators can utilize this feedback to create a customized and tailored approach to the daily care of your loved one.
We also stand out from the other Alzheimer’s and dementia care providers in the Hudson Valley area for other reasons. Whether it is our rigorous selection process for caregivers, our caregiver training that is ongoing or the personal consultations that we offer, running throughout the implementing of our entire approach is our Culture of Care. And we continually monitor the effectiveness of our approach with:
- Client Satisfaction Surveys
- Client and Caregiver Focus Groups
- Advisory Councils
