A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
Here at FirstLight Home Care of NW and South Tampa, you’ll find dementia care and elderly care plans designed to help people in Westchase, Town ‘N’ Country, and Carrollwood, cope with anxiety, confusion, depression, and isolation, as these are common side effects for those suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s. What makes our program unique is that our plans are designed to help both the person struggling with dementia and their loved ones. We understand that every person with dementia is different. How they behave, what they remember, and how they communicate will vary depending on what stage of dementia they are in and depending who they are as an individual.
Person-First Dementia Care
For the reasons mentioned above, FirstLight Home Care of NW and South Tampa has created a one of a kind Dementia Care Program to coincide with our elderly care services. What makes it unique is the fact that the care plan is built around the individual instead of the disease. We take into consideration who they were before the disease took over and who they are today as a result of the disease. This approach is both individualized and attentive, ensuring that all patients have a sense of purpose in their lives.
Each patient will get a personalized “Who I Am” booklet that’s designed to reinforce their personal history and answer questions like these.
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
The answers to these questions will help our caregivers and care coordinators make customized daily care plans. You will become a part of our rigorous caregiver selection process which involves one-on-one consultations; this will make the overall process much easier for you. Through a variety of vices, including client satisfaction surveys, client and caregiver focus groups, and advisory councils, we will make sure our dementia care services are always evolving so we can provide the best possible family experiences.
FirstLight Home Care of NW and South Tampa provides dementia care and elderly care services to the Hillsborough County communities of Westchase, Town ‘N’ Country, Carrollwood, Hyde Park, Citrus Park, Keystone, and Greater Northdale.
