A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
Looking for elderly care services and assistance for your loved one that is living with dementia or Alzheimer’s can be an overwhelming process. FirstLight Home Care is here to help make the process easier for you. We have created care plans specific to helping individuals navigate through the confusion, isolation and anxiety that comes with these diseases. Our dementia care programs and elderly care services in Savannah, Hilton Head Island, or Bluffton benefit not only individuals living with dementia or Alzheimer’s, but their family members as well.
Individuals living with dementia or Alzheimer’s are not all the same. These diseases will affect each person differently. It’s important to remember that when you meet someone with dementia or Alzheimer’s you’ve only met one person, simply because of how their personalities will play into each stage of these diseases.
Person-First Dementia Care
FirstLight Home Care has created a unique Dementia Care Program that curates it’s care around the individual, not the disease. We created this approach with the intent that we include who they were before the disease effected their lives. This is a custom procedure that ensures everyone changed by dementia is living out the rest of their life with purpose.
Our clients at FirstLight Home Care of Savannah, Bluffton, and Hilton Head Island start our dementia care program by asking individuals to fill a “Who I Am” booklet. This will share things about your loved one, such as:
- What makes you happy?
- What makes you laugh?
- What is something that makes you feel accomplished.
- What frustrated you? What makes you stressed?
Using the information from their “Who I Am” booklet, our professional caregivers and coordinators create a unique dementia care plan for your loved one. You’re included throughout the entire process, so you know exactly what we are doing and how we select the right caregivers for your loved one. To ensure our elderly care and dementia care services in Savannah, Bluffton, and Hilton Head are creating the best experience for your loved one, we have routine satisfaction surveys, advisory councils and focus groups so we can better determine the effectiveness of all our care programs.
