A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care

For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease

The onset of dementia brings along with it symptoms of isolation, confusion, depression and anxiety.  Our mission is to help overcome these symptoms by utilizing our unique dementia care plans that offer personalized home care assistance to those suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s disease in Murfreesboro, Smyrna, Nolensvile and the surrounding communities. Not only do we create individualized programs for those affected by dementia, but our dementia care programs also aim to help their family as well.

Our Murfreesboro dementia care programs are created specifically for each individual since each person will respond differently to the stages of dementia. Each person affected by this disease will behave and remember differently because they will still retain elements of their personality.

Person-First Dementia Care

Based in Murfreesboro, our Dementia Care Program was created specifically to highlight these individual differences rather than a generic approach to the disease.  Our program incorporates our client’s past experiences, not just the symptoms that are currently present. FirstLight Home Care of Rutherford County provides home care assistance in Murfreesboro, Smyrna, Nolensville, and surrounding communities that engages each individual to help them live a fulfilling and meaningful life.

In order to gain a better understanding of each client’s unique differences, we will start with a “Who I Am” booklet that asks questions such as:

  • What makes you happy?
  • Laugh?
  • Feel accomplished?
  • What distresses or frustrates you?

This information is processed by our Murfreesboro dementia care coordinators and caregivers to create a specialized plan for home care assistance.  We are happy to include the family in our consultations and we value your opinion throughout our rigorous caregiver selection process.  In order to be sure that we are continually providing the highest possible care for our clients, our effectiveness is evaluated through the use of advisory councils, caregiver and client focus groups, and client satisfaction surveys.
