A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
At FirstLight Home Care we understand that dementia can have a large impact on the dementia sufferer as well as the entire family. We have developed a unique program that helps people who are suffering from Alzheimer’s or dementia cope with all of the confusion, isolation, anxiety and depression that can occur. Our dementia and elderly care programs are designed to help the family as a whole, available throughout Donelson, Hermitage, and Mt. Juliet.
Each person experiences dementia differently. Each person will remember different, act different and talk different. At FirstLight Home Care we take into consideration who the person was as well as who they are today to provide the best care for that individual person.
Person-First Dementia Care
Our goal is to ensure those who have dementia, as well as those around them, live the rest of their lives to their fullest potential. Our unique and individualized Dementia and Elderly Care Programs, available throughout Donelson, Hermitage, and Mt. Juliet, support the individual person behind the disease, not just what the disease shows us today.
We develop a “Who I Am” booklet for each individual that allows us to learn more than just the basic health history of the person. We want to learn personal details that help us provide the best care such as:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
The information learned from the “Who I Am” booklet will be used to make a specific plan to assist our highly-trained caregivers in providing the most personalized care every day. We ensure that family members are involved in every step of the process. We include you in our rigorous caregiver selection process and one-on-one consultations. Not only is our selection process rigorous, but we also focus on continually improving our services by evaluating the effectiveness. You will be involved with evaluation through advisory councils, client and caregiver focus groups and client satisfaction surveys.
