Personalized Nashville & Franklin Dementia Care Services
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
FirstLight Home Care offers specialized dementia care programs in Franklin, Brentwood, and Nashville for people suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s who need support when they are feeling confused, depressed, or lonely. The struggles associated with a loved one’s dementia can seem overwhelming and impossible to overcome. We can provide the compassion and supervision necessary to help your loved one manage their disease and remain connected to the family.
Every dementia and Alzheimer’s patient is a person underneath it all. We provide a unique system of dementia care and Alzheimer’s care programs in Franklin, Nashville, and Brentwood for the person rather than the disease. Behavior depends on who they are as a person, and we take the time to find out who that person is by opening a dialogue with you, who knows them better than anyone. No matter their needs, we will make sure they receive the highest quality of care.
Person-First Dementia Care
A person is a person—not a disease. Our Nashville, Brentwood, and Franklin Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s Care program focuses on that essential truth, incorporating your loved one’s past, present, and future to understand their personality and needs. Because we offer a specialized approach to their care, we hope to engage them in life and rediscover their self every single day.
We use a “Who I Am” booklet to optimize our services for your loved one, gathering information that goes beyond basic history to the core of a person’s character:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
Based on this information, our Nashville, Brentwood, and Franklin Alzheimer’s care and dementia care coordinators develop an individualized approach to your loved one’s health and daily needs. The caregiver assigned to your loved one is chosen from a select pool based specifically on personality match and one-on-one consultations. We communicate with you every step of the way to ensure you remain invested in their care. FirstLight strives to remain a leader in home care with client satisfaction surveys, client and caregiver focus groups, and advisory councils. These performance indicators let us know where we can improve in assisting your loved one and where we’ve been successful.
