A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
FirstLight Home Care of North Tampa and East Pasco County has developed unique dementia care and elderly care plans to help those that are suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s in Tampa, Wesley Chapel, and surrounding communities. Often times, anxiety, depression, confusion, and isolation come along with the disease. We have a program that helps them cope with, not only the disease itself, but also the symptoms that come along with it. We are dedicated to caring for the family as a whole, and not solely the dementia victim.
Dementia characteristics vary case by case. A person’s personality will help determine how each individual will talk, act, remember, and behave. It’s more about who they are, as a person, than the stage of dementia in which they are in.
Person-First Dementia Care
FirstLight Home Care, serving seniors throughout Tampa and Wesley Chapel, has refined an exclusive Dementia Care and Elderly Care Program that focuses on caring for the individual, not the disease. We look at who they were, along with who we see today. This is a very personalized and engaging approach. Our goal is to make sure they live their life with a purpose!
Each client will have a “Who I Am” booklet to help us understand as much as possible about them, such as:
- What makes you happy?
- What makes you laugh?
- What makes you feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
This information is used to build individualized care plans by dementia coordinators. We prefer that you, as a family, are a part of our caregiver selection process and one-on-one consultations, as it is quite meticulous. In order to ensure that we are always providing the best possible family experiences, we do frequent evaluations with client satisfaction surveys, client and caregiver focus groups, and advisory councils.
