A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
We at FirstLight Home Care have developed advanced dementia care plans to help people who suffer from any level of dementia or Alzheimer’s. We have the resources to help those suffering from the common symptoms associated with the disease, such as anxiety, depression, confusion and feelings of isolation. The unique dementia care and home care assistance programs we offer in San Antonio, Alamo Heights, and Helotes, are designed not only to help your loved one, but the family as a whole.
Each dementia patient is unique; they will all speak, act, and behave differently. This is not only caused by the stage of dementia they are in, but because of their biological makeup; that is to say, each individual with dementia will have differing outward signs and symptoms of the disease.
Person-First Dementia Care
FirstLight Home Care has developed a unique and individualized approach to dementia care. Our Dementia Care Program builds our caregivers’ service around the individual, rather than the disease. We incorporate who they were before the disease, not just the person we see today. Our personalized goal is to ensure that those affected by dementia live the remainder of their lives with purpose.
Each of our clients receives a “Who I Am” booklet that we ask them to fill out, by themselves or with the help of a family member, friend, or caregiver. Each booklet is designed to discover more than just basic medical history; we want to understand who your family member was and is as a person.
The “Who I Am” booklet is full of questions such as:
- What makes you laugh?
- What activities do you enjoy most?
- What do you do that makes you feel accomplished?
- What frustrates or upsets you?
Our San Antonio dementia care and home care assistance coordinators use the information provided to build individualized care plans tailored to suit your loved ones’ daily care needs. Throughout the process, we help keep you involved in your loved one’s care by making you a part of the important process of caregiver selection, offering one-on-one consultations. We continuously evaluate our dementia care services to ensure that we are always evolving and meeting your needs, even as they grow and change. We frequently offer client satisfaction surveys, focus groups for clients and caregivers, and an advisory council.
We proudly provide care services throughout San Antonio, Alamo Heights, Helotes, Schertz, Universal City, Selma, Leon Valley, Leon Springs, Fair Oaks Ranch, Timberwood Park, Boerne, Converse, New Braunfels, Shavano Park, and Castle Hills.
