DIABETES

Keeping diabetes in check is a constant responsibility. Complications can lead to stroke, kidney disease, blindness and nerve damage, so it's essential to manage the disease properly, on a daily basis. The right home care can help.

At Partners in Care, we can create a Plan of Care that is tailored to individuals with diabetes, emphasizing specific goals. Once we have determined your loved one's needs, we'll assign a specially trained home health aide or skilled nurse, depending upon the type of care you need or desire, who will help establish a daily routine aimed at managing diabetes, coping with sudden changes and staying alert to issues that may arise. Our home care professionals will also coordinate with your medical team, if necessary, and help to ease your stress as they restore your loved one's independence.

 

A typical plan may include:

  • Keeping your doctor updated on your progress.
  • Supervising and managing your blood sugar levels.
  • Administering insulin shots.
  • Creating a schedule of self-management.
  • Preparing meals and menu planning.
  • Alerting you to symptoms that require immediate medical help.
