For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
When your loved one experiences Alzheimer’s disease, there is caring and appropriate dementia care available to Maryville, Knoxville, Farragut, and the surrounding communities. FirstLight believes that with the right approach in dementia care and home care assistance, your loved one can maintain a higher quality of life as their memory fades. Part of that care may include remaining in familiar surroundings so your loved one feels safe and loved.
Even with the same diagnosis, no two people are identical in how dementia affects them. That’s why we have developed customized dementia care for clients in Maryville, Knoxville, Farragut, and the surrounding communities to help individuals to ensure they are receiving respectful and compassionate home care assistance.
Person-First Dementia Care
FirstLight Home Care’s unique set of principles build care that honors the person—who they were before dementia changed them. Our goal is to help you and your loved one create a life worth living each day. To do this, we provide a “Who I Am” booklet for the patient and their family to fill out so we can understand the person we are entrusted to help. It is important for us to understand more about your loved one so our approach is personalized. This booklet helps gives us a clearer picture of:
• What makes you happy?
• Feel accomplished?
• What distresses or frustrates you?
With FirstLight’s individualized dementia care plans, your loved one receives the care and attention they need based on the information shared in this booklet. Our coordinators and caregivers remain hands-on throughout the process, including one-on-one consultations to make sure life does not stop with the diagnosis of dementia.
Providing the best possible experience for families who entrust their loved one in our care, we make a conscious effort to evaluate our home care assistance in Maryville, Knoxville, Farragut, and surrounding communities. This process entails using client satisfaction surveys, focus groups and advisory councils to provide continuous supportive dementia care and home care assistance.
