A Personalized, Engaging Approach to Dementia Care
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
The stages of dementia affects each person individually, so that one person will talk, remember, and behave differently than another person. It is important to remember that meeting one person with dementia doesn’t define everyone affected by this disease, in large part because of who they are as a person.
Personalized Dementia Care
It’s important to us here at FirstLight Home Care of Fairfield County to make sure that knowledge is in every step of your loved one’s care, so that our unique Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s Care Program incorporates who they are, and who they were, not only how they are affected by the disease. We strive to build personal, engaging care around individuals, not dementia itself, so that our approach enables those affected to live the rest of their lives with meaning. Our Dementia Care and Alzheimer’s Care Services are available to those in Greenwich, Stamford, and all other Fairfield County communities.
We accomplish this in part through the “Who I am” booklets that each client receives, giving us more than a basic history to work with. We ask questions that help us know and understand certain things about your loved one, like:
- What distresses or frustrates you?
- What makes you feel accomplished?
- What makes you laugh?
- What makes you happy?
The answers to these questions, and others like them, are then used by Dementia Care Coordinators and Caregivers to create specific, unique plans for the daily care of your loved one.
FirstLight Home Care’s approach to dementia differs from other Greenwich and Stamford Alzheimer’s care and dementia care home care agencies. We focus on continued evaluations while we apply the plan with a meticulous caregiver selection process, and one-on-one consultations. Not only do our caregivers receive on-going training, we also evaluate the plan’s success with:
- Client Satisfaction Surveys
- Client and Caregiver Focus Groups
- Advisory Councils
Located in Norwalk and Ridgefield, CT, FirstLight Home Care of Fairfield County encourages residents of Stamford, Greenwich, Ridgefield and all other communities of Fairfield County to take advantage of our premier Alzheimer’s care and dementia care services.
