A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
Associated with Dementia and Alzheimer’s diseases often come depression, anxiety, isolation, and confusion. FirstLight Home Care has customized dementia care and elderly care plans to help individuals suffering from any of these conditions in Southbury, Middlebury, Woodbury, and Washington. When building care plans, we make sure to take the entire family into consideration, as we understand Alzheimer’s and dementia impacts the entire family of the sufferer. Coming across one person with dementia only gives you a partial experience of the whole person. This is because the way each person suffering from dementia will act, behave, and remember will vary. The variation is not as a result of the stage of dementia but simply because people are unique individuals.
Person-First Dementia Care
FirstLight Home Care has a signature Dementia, Alzheimer’s, and Elderly Care plan built to address each individual and not just the disease for individuals in Southbury, Middlebury, Woodbury, and Washington. We carry out care based on the personality of the individual, not just a conclusion based on what we can see today. This approach ensures that sufferers of the disease are able to enjoy the rest of their lives purposefully. We have a “Who I Am” booklet that helps to collect clients’ essential information which goes beyond their basic history. Things we try to find out about the clients include:
- What makes you happy?
- Feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates you?
Our caregivers use this information, who use them to develop individualized and specific care plans. We work to involve the families in a thorough caregiver selection process to deliver the best results with one-on-one consultations. We also have a running survey, advisory councils, and client and caregiver focus groups that help to track client satisfaction, thus allowing us improve our care services to provide families with the best dementia care experience. All of our caregivers go through rigorous background checks and training to ensure only the best care is provided.
