A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
FirstLight Home Care of Katy and Cypress has developed dementia care and elderly care services plans, with an understanding that the suffering not only affects the individual with dementia or Alzheimer’s deals with, but also the family of the individual. Anxiety, depression, confusion, and isolation are just some of the conditions associated with the disease. Our one-of-a-kind Katy dementia care and elderly care services program helps individuals with dementia or Alzheimer’s, as well as their families, cope with these conditions.
Many times the individual with dementia is treated as a case, rather than a person. Each individual person will talk, act, remember, and behave differently. The individual does this not only because of the stage of dementia they are in, but because of who they are.
Person-First Dementia Care
At FirstLight Home Care, we provide Cypress and Katy dementia care and elderly care services plans based on the individual, not just the disease. FirstLight has developed its own care program, embracing who the individual was before dementia and who they are today. It is our goal at FirstLight to help those with dementia and Alzheimer’s live their lives with purpose. We have designed the care program to be personalized, engaging the individual.
In order to understand more than the basic history of your loved one, each client’s “Who I Am” booklet answers questions such as:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
FirstLight’s Katy and Cypress dementia care staff use this information, creating daily home care assistance plans that are specific and individualized. In addition to the individual’s care, including the family throughout the process is important to us at FirstLight. To do this, you will have an active part in the caregiver selection process, such as one-on-one consultations. We are continually evaluating the effectiveness of the dementia care services through client satisfaction surveys, focus groups for both the client and the caregiver, and the advisory councils.
