A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
FirstLight Home Care is committed to providing a different type of dementia care in Salem, Keizer, Silverton, OR and surrounding areas. People who are suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s often encounter a unique set of difficulties, such as increased risk for anxiety, depression, isolation, and confusion, which requires unique solutions. Fortunately, our programs cater to the needs of the dementia sufferer as well as the entire family to create a holistic care regimen.
Dementia affects each person in a different way, meaning that not everyone with the disease presents the same symptoms. Why? Because each person with dementia is still a unique individual, with unique patterns of speech, behavior, memories, and experiences, so dementia affects each person in a different manner.
Person-First Dementia Care
FirstLight Home Care’s Dementia Care Program, serving Salem, Keizer, Silverton and nearby areas, has a people-first approach that sets them apart. By creating care regimens on an individualized basis, it is possible to incorporate an individual’s unique difficulties, needs, and situation in order to care for the individual, rather than simply treating the disease. This enables your loved one to live a purposeful life, even with the onset of dementia symptoms.
The first step of this unique program involves filling out a “Who I Am” booklet where family members have a chance to share helpful information about their loved one, including:
- What makes you happy?
- What makes you laugh?
- What gives you a sense of accomplishment?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
Next, our experienced dementia caregivers create an individualized care plan that incorporates these facets of your loved one’s personality and history. You will be included every step of the way as a caretaker is selected and one-on-one consultations are conducted with your family.
Finally, we ensure the success and suitability of our dementia care program through frequent client satisfaction surveys, focus groups, and advisory councils. FirstLight Home Care provides caring and compassionate dementia and elderly care to Salem, Keizer, Silverton and surrounding areas.
