A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
FirstLight Home Care knows that dealing with dementia and Alzheimer’s disease can be overwhelming. We’re here to help you with caring, highly trained caregivers who understand the challenges you are facing. You are not alone. FirstLight Home Care understands the complexities of dementia and Alzheimer’s and how these diseases can impact you and your loved ones. We provide caring services to help families and individuals affected by these debilitating diseases.
Our dementia care and elderly care services help you and your loved ones cope with the confusion, depression, isolation, and anxiety that are commonly associated with dementia and Alzheimer’s. We know that the symptoms can vary from person to person because of each individual’s unique personality.
Person-First Dementia Care
That’s why FirstLight has developed its unique Dementia Program—building care around the individual, not the disease—incorporating who they were, not just who we see today. It’s a personalized and engaging approach, where our goal is to make sure those affected by this disease live the rest of their lives with purpose.
Because the symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer’s are unique for each person, FirstLight Home Care has dementia care and elderly care service programs designed to build care around each individual. Our dementia care services consider who the person was before the disease.
We want to ensure those impacted by dementia and Alzheimer’s can continue to live purposeful lives, so our approach to client service is engaging and individualized. Each of our clients completes a “Who I Am” booklet to answer questions about their basic history as well as questions like “What makes you happy?” and “What distresses or frustrates you?” to better understand them as a person.
This information gives our dementia care and elderly care service coordinators and caregivers the insight they need to develop a personalized care plan for your loved one. You are included in the process of selecting a caregiver and one-on-one consultations. Your insight and feedback are important to us, so we ask for your input with client satisfaction surveys, focus groups, and advisory councils. Our goal is to ensure our dementia care services continue to provide the best client service and family experiences.
