Diabetes Care

Just as with those of advanced age, when you have diabetes, the things so many people take for granted every day can end up being unique challenges. Meal planning revolves around making sure your diet is diabetic-friendly. Keeping fit and active is even more important. And, of course, you always have to make time for testing your blood glucose levels.

What often makes this even harder is when people are diagnosed with diabetes late in life, when their day-to-day schedule has become so engrained that it’s a nearly impossible routine to break.

Fortunately, from education to training to maintenance, Right at Home caregivers can be a powerful ally helping you or your loved ones keep on top of diabetes management.

What Is Diabetes?

In a healthy person’s body, their pancreas produces a hormone called insulin, which regulates the absorption of sugars. Whenever they eat something that contains sugar, that insulin helps their body maintain a normal level of blood sugar. Diabetes develops when a person’s body becomes resistant to insulin or their pancreas doesn’t produce enough insulin to properly manage the amount of sugar in their blood.

That means people with diabetes have to learn to do other things to regulate their blood sugar. Without that management, they’re at risk of serious complications like heart and circulatory diseases.

How Can Right at Home Help?

Instead of trying to fit diabetes into a pre-built care plan, we’ve worked with countless adults with diabetes to develop a personalized care plan taking into account their needs and limitations at every step. This includes:
