Personalized Dementia Care Services
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
People who are suffering from Alzheimer’s disease or dementia may feel anxious, depressed, isolated or confused. FirstLight Home Care of Northern Kentucky provides home care assistance to Crestview Hills, Florence, Covington and the surrounding communities to help people find relief from these symptoms and enhance their daily lives. Our dementia care plans are designed to help our clients, as well as their entire family. FirstLight Home Care understands that each person with dementia is unique and aside from the different stages of dementia, people experience dementia differently based on their own personality and who they are as a person – past, present, and future, not just who we see today. Because of this, no two individuals who are affected by dementia are alike and each one will speak, act, behave and remember differently from the next.
Person-First Dementia Care
With this in mind, FirstLight Home Care has created a specialized dementia care program. We provide home care assistance that caters to the individual instead of just the disease itself. Each care program takes into account the person’s individual characteristics. By taking this personalized approach to dementia care, we enable the client to have a sense of independence while receiving the care they need. Our goal is to help those with dementia live a life that’s filled with purpose, despite the disease that impacts their daily lives.
Every client has their own, “Who I Am” booklet that they fill out in order to give us a full view of their history and personality. We’re interested in things like:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
This information is then used by our caregivers and program coordinators to create personalized care plans for each client. Our dementia care plans are then broken down into daily tasks, determining where the client needs the most support. When creating a plan for home care assistance for residents of Crestview Hills, Florence, Covington and surrounding communities, not only do we include those in need of care, but the entire family as well, making sure to they are involved in the selection of the caregiver. Ongoing consultations and 1-on-1 meetings are held to ensure the best care is being provided.
Additionally, FirstLight Home Care is committed to making sure that every family has a good experience when it comes to the care of their loved one. The effectiveness of our program is regularly evaluated for client satisfaction. You may be asked to fill out a survey or be part of a focus group. We also hold an advisory council to determine how happy clients and their families are with our services.
