A Personalized Approach to Memory Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Alzheimer’s or other Cognitive Diagnosis
FirstLight Home Care has partnered with industry leading training programs to develop, implement and manage care plans for elderly care to assist with Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s Disease and many other forms of cognitive dementia. The goal of these programs are to help clients with these conditions better cope with the anxiety, depression, isolation, and confusion that accompanies them. Dementia is extremely complex and symptoms vary from person to person, so our Dementia Care Program is designed with the individual needs at the core. This starts with taking time to properly evaluate specific needs, conditions and behaviors so that we can develop and implement a successful care plan possible.
