A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
FirstLight Home Care of Lancaster, Manheim, and Lititz has developed unique dementia care and elderly care programs to make life easier for people and their families. With a collaborative approach, we help people suffering from dementia and Alzheimer’s cope with feelings of confusion, anxiety, depression, and isolation that often accompany the disease.
Our care is individualized for each person. We adapt our care based on each client’s personality, from their favorite activities to their communication preferences. Understanding these traits allows us to personalize home care with compassion and positivity.
Person-First Dementia Care
The FirstLight Home Care Dementia program focuses on the individual rather than the disease. This engaging approach creates positive and unique experiences in our clients’ lives with dementia. We strive to understand and engage the whole person—not just who they are now, but who they were and truly are. By considering their self, we can provide the best possible care and improve their life.
Our goal is providing dementia care and elderly care that truly connects with our clients in Lancaster, Manheim, and Lititz, and reassures them of their future.
To gain a better understanding of your loved one, we have developed a “Who Am I” booklet. This series of questions allows us to see them as a complete person with questions like:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
Using this information, we match a qualified Dementia Care Coordinator and Caregiver with your loved one and develop personalized daily care plans. We also keep you informed with one-on-one consultations to monitor our progress. This evaluation process will continue throughout our home care services. We constantly strive to evolve and improve our dementia care by using client and caregiver focus groups, advisory councils, and client satisfaction surveys.
