A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
People living with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease often feel isolated, depressed, anxious, and confused. At FirstLight Home Care of Roselle, we have developed specialized dementia care plans for people with dementia, not only for the individual, but for family members as well. Dementia affects each person differently. Each is unique is the areas of communication, behavior, and even how they remember. It is important to take into account that they are individuals, and their care cannot simply be generalized with everyone else’s care in the same stage of dementia.
Person-First Dementia Care in Roselle
That’s why FirstLight Home Care has developed its unique Dementia Care Program—building dementia care around the individual, not the disease—incorporating who they were, not just who we see today. It’s a personalized and engaging approach to home care assistance in the Roselle area, where our goal is to make sure those affected by this disease live the rest of their lives with purpose.
Each client’s “Who I Am” booklet is completed to answer much more than basic history… We want to understand things about your loved one such as:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
Using the answers to these and other questions, our dementia care coordinators and caregivers are able to design care plans specific to the individual’s particular needs for daily assistance. At FirstLight Home Care of Roselle, we believe it is important for the person receiving home care assistance to participate in selecting the caregiver, including consultations directly with potential caregivers. In order to make sure that you and your loved ones receive the best care, we use client satisfaction surveys, hold focus groups, and coordinate advisory groups.
