A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
We realize that each person living with dementia is unique. Every person reacts differently to the stages of dementia because of their past experiences and who are they are as an individual. At FirstLight Home Care, we provide Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s Care assistance to families in Port Saint Lucie, Stuart, Palm City and the surrounding area that are geared to their specific needs.
Person-First Dementia Care
Our Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s Care Programs are focused on the person first, not just their symptoms. It’s important to take into account the history of each patient to help each individual live a life of purpose. One tool that we use is the ‘Who I Am’ workbook. It becomes a history of the person being cared for and helps us to understand what is important to him or her. The booklet asks questions such as:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
These questions we ask of the patient allow us to individualize the assistance we provide. In consultation with families in Port Saint Lucie and the surrounding Treasure Coast area, we will devise a Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s Care plan that is specific to each individual. At FirstLight Home Care, we continually evaluate our methods and adjust them for maximum effectiveness. Through patient and caregiver surveys, focus groups and professional consultation, we strive to give the best possible care for everyone involved.
