A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
One of the hardest parts of Alzheimer’s is the associated issues of anxiety, depression, confusion, and isolation that are often a part of the disease. FirstLight Home Care has developed innovative plans to assist those with Alzheimer’s and their loved ones by utilizing unique programs for dementia care and elderly care services in their Huntsville, Madison, or Decatur home.
Every person is unique, and a person with dementia is no different. They will speak, react, recall memories, and act differently because they are an individual, just like anyone else.
Person-First Dementia Care
With FirstLight Home Care’s Dementia Care Program, the support is tailored around the person and not the disease. We believe that a program should focus on who the person was and not just how they appear today. By personalizing the approach, the end goal is to help people have a purpose in their lives regardless of dementia.
As part of our dementia care and elderly care program in Huntsville, Madison, and Decatur, every client receives a “Who I Am” booklet that helps us understand more than just a basic history. We want to know so much more about your loved one, such as things like:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
This information allows our dementia care coordinators and caregivers to create individualized plans for daily care that are specific to your loved one. And because we want you to be as involved as possible, we use your help during the rigorous selection process to choose the right caregiver, which includes one-on-one consultations. Your ongoing feedback matters which is why we strive to improve our services by constantly evaluating how effective our programs are using client satisfaction surveys, caregiver and client focus groups, and advisory councils. If you are interested in dementia care or elderly care services for your loved one in Huntsville, Madison, Decatur, Meridianville, Hampton Cove, Toney, Harvest, Hazel Green, East Limestone, or Athens, reach out to us at FirstLight today.
