A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
Each case of dementia is as different as each person who struggles with the disease. Therefore each person will behave, talk, and even remember differently regardless of which stage of dementia they are experiencing.
Person-First Dementia Care
At FirstLight South Central, we have developed a compassionate Columbus Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s Care Programs built to be completely customized to the individual being cared for. Following FirstLight’s Culture of Care, we construct our Columbus dementia and Alzheimer’s care programs around the individual, not the disease. By incorporating our “Who I Am” questionnaire booklet we get to know our clients on a personal level by asking such questions like:
- What makes you feel accomplished?
- What makes you happy?
- What kind of things make you laugh?
- Is there anything that makes you angry or causes you to be distressed?
Using the answers from these and similar questions, we gain an understanding of who that person is, and who they were even before the onset of dementia or Alzheimer’s. With this insight we can build an individualized and engaging dementia care program intended to help the person affected by dementia live their lives in peace and with purpose.
FirstLight works differently than other Columbus home care providers because of our unique Culture of Care, our nationwide promise of absolutely exceptional service and care from our staff and caregivers, who will tirelessly strive to bring you the best non-medical in home care. FirstLight has a rigorous selection process for potential caregivers, and provides those who are selected with ongoing training and one-on-one consultations to ensure their effectiveness. Available to the communities of Columbus, Seymour, and Greenwood, these highly trained and compassionate in-home caregivers will then execute each individualized dementia or Alzheimer’s care plan to the fullest extent of our Culture of Care, continually monitoring it’s performance with systems specially developed for the task, including:
- Client Satisfaction Surveys
- Advisory Councils
- Client and Caregiver Focus Groups
