A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
Dementia is a highly individualized condition. Not only does it affect each person differently, but drastic personality changes are experienced as each person moves through the different stages of the disease. Memory loss, confusion, irritability, and anxiety are all common symptoms for a dementia sufferer.
Caring for those affected by Alzheimer’s or dementia diseases requires a high level of empathy and personalization. At FirstLight Home Care we recognize this need for specialized care and created our Dementia Care and Elderly Care Program for residing in Ridgefield, Wilton, Redding, and surrounding Fairfield County communities, designed to assist both the person living with dementia and their family.
Person-First Dementia Care
We believe that the best way to offer the kind of care that you expect for your loved one is to begin with the person living with dementia, not the disease itself. Our one-of-a-kind Dementia Care Program puts the caregiving focus right where it belongs: on the individual. It starts with the “Who I Am” profile.
The “Who I Am” booklet is a highly personalized profile encompassing much more than just personality basics. It’s a tool and a guide for our expert caregivers. We look for in-depth details like:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
Our coordinators use this profile to select the perfect caregivers for your loved one, a process that each family takes part in. Caregivers then use and build upon the profile to create dementia and elderly care plans that best suit you and your loved one’s needs in Ridgefield, Wilton, Redding, or surrounding communities. We use engagement, knowledge and empathy to help those with dementia live their lives with dignity and fulfillment. A continual improvement process ensures that your loved one receives the best possible care through the changing faces of their disease.
