A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
It is always a case of who a person is as opposed to what stage of dementia they are in. We believe this to be the case at FirstLight because no matter the stage of dementia a person is in, each person will behave, remember, talk and act differently.
Person-First Dementia Care
After factoring in and evaluating this, FirstLight Home Care of Tri-Valley made it a priority to implement a one-of-a-kind Dementia Care Program available to those in San Ramon, Danville, Walnut Creek, and nearby cities. The overarching priority of this dementia care program is to build care around the individual and not the disease. Our skilled and highly-trained staff is taught to think about whom each patient is and not who they might be seeing today. We believe this is a more engaging and personalized approach. Ultimately, it is the goal of this program to better ensure that each patient that’s affected by this disease is able to live out the rest of their lives with purpose.
We provide each patient with a “Who Am I” booklet so that we can better get to know and understand their history.
