A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
FirstLight Home Care in Lexington, Versailles, Georgetown, and Nicholasville, has created dementia and elderly care plans that focus on your loved one and not just the disease. We help those suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s cope with the negative feelings that the disease can bring, like anxiety, confusion, depression, and isolation. While we focus on the individual, our unique programs are designed to help the entire family.
We focus on the individual because we know each person is different and each person is affected by the disease differently. That is to say that each person will speak, remember, and behave differently not just because of disease progression, but because of who they are.
Person-First Dementia Care
That’s why FirstLight Home Care has created such a unique Dementia Care Program, considering who each person was before they became the person we see today. We build our dementia and elderly care plan for your Lexington, Versailles, Georgetown, and Nicholasville area loved one around the person they are instead of the disease, creating a personalized approach so that each person affected by dementia can still live life with engagement and purpose.
We help each client complete a “Who I Am” booklet to make sure we know more than just physical history. We want to understand our clients and get to know things about them, for example:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
Using this information, our caregivers and dementia care coordinators build specific and personalized dementia care plans for daily care. We also make you a part of our caregiver selection process so that you stay informed and involved. In addition to one-on-one consultations, we also evaluate our program’s effectiveness with focus groups, advisory councils, and satisfaction surveys. Using these tools, we can make sure that we are always improving and making sure we provide the best possible care experiences for the clients and families we serve.
FirstLight Home Care is proud to provide caring, compassionate dementia and elderly care to the Lexington, Versailles, Georgetown, Nicholasville, Chevy Chase, Downtown, Ashland Park, Idle Hour, Stonewall, Palomar, Keene Trace, and Hamburg communities.
