A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
Just as no two fingerprints are exactly alike, people living with dementia won’t experience the same symptoms. Each person is unique. Not only can the disease progress at a different pace for each person, but symptoms can change from month to month, even week to week.
For this reason, giving care to those living with conditions like dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, TBI, or degenerative brain disease requires patience and a high level of customization. Where some might see this as impossible, FirstLight Home Care sees no problem at all. Our dementia care and elderly care services in Libertyville, Deerfield, and Lake Forest never start with the disease. They ALWAYS begin with the individual.
Person-First Dementia Care
Dementia isn’t a one-size-fits-all condition, and so caring for a person with dementia shouldn’t be approached with a one-size-fits-all philosophy. We firmly believe that the only way to give the kind of care that comes close to what you yourself give to your loved one is to focus on each person living with dementia as an individual.
Our unique Dementia Care and Elderly Care Program was developed to guarantee personalized care for clients in Libertyville, Deerfield, and Lake Forest. The “Who I Am” booklet is its foundation. With this groundbreaking approach, we create a comprehensive personality profile with details like:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
From the “Who I Am” booklet our team works with you – the family – to craft a caregiving plan that suits both you and your loved one’s needs. We then carefully select the perfect caregivers to implement that plan. And we don’t stop there. As your loved one moves through the stages of their disease, we continually adjust the care plan to ensure the very best care. We want every person we care for to be able to live life with purpose and dignity.
