A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
Dementia is a difficult condition to live with. If you have a loved one who has dementia, you know they are more than just the disease. At FirstLight Home Care — South Sound, we have developed a Dementia Care Program unique in the Olympia area, one built to address your loved ones specific needs, a personalized program for the individual, not the disease. Our goal is to make sure those afflicted by this disease live the rest of their lives with purpose. The FirstLight Olympia Dementia Care Program use an engaging approach to incorporate who your loved one was into the care program, not just who we see today.
Person-First Dementia Care
Each of our clients is given a “Who I Am” booklet, in which they will give us information that will help us understand who they are as a person, not just their basic history. We want to know:
- What distresses or frustrates you?
- What makes you happy?
- What makes you laugh?
- Feel accomplished?
- Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s Care Coordinators and
- Caregivers then use this information to build a specific and individualized plan for your loved one’s daily care.
The Dementia Care Program at FirstLight Home Care — South Sound is different from other Olympia Alzheimer’s care and dementia care companies, going above and beyond to bring you and your loved ones the best in home care. We call it our Culture of Care, which involves a very rigorous selection process, ongoing training, and one-on-one consultations with continued evaluations involving:
- Client Satisfaction Surveys
- Client and Caregiver Focus Groups
- Advisory Councils
