Personalized Dementia Care Plans Throughout Westchester
For Any Stage of Dementia, Including Alzheimer’s Disease
If you have met one person with dementia, you’ve only met one person. That is, each individual will talk, act, remember, and behave differently, not simply because of what stage of dementia they are in, but because they are who they are.
That’s why FirstLight Home Care Westchester County has developed its unique Dementia Care Program which builds care around the individual, not the disease. We incorporate knowledge of who the patient was in the past with the person who we see today to provide a highly personalized plan of care. We use an engaging approach with our clients and our goal is always to make sure those affected by this disease live the rest of their lives with purpose.
We provide each client with a booklet entitled, “Who I Am”, which we ask them to complete in order to gain a better understanding of who they are. We seek to understand more than just their basic history; we desire to understand things about your loved one such as:
- What makes them happy?
- What makes them laugh?
- What makes them feel accomplished?
- What distresses or frustrates them?
Our Somers dementia care coordinators and dementia caregivers then use this information to build a specific and individualized plan for your loved one’s daily care.
How is this different from other White Plains Alzheimer’s and Dementia care companies? We implement a rigorous caregiver selection process followed by on-going caregiver training and one-on-one consultations with our clients. We not only implement this plan throughout our Culture of Care, but we continue to evaluate its effectiveness with:
- Client Satisfaction Surveys
- Client and Caregiver Focus Groups and
- Advisory Councils
