Diabetes Management

 IncrediCare

When a patient has diabetes, there are many things to be accounted for, including blood glucose monitoring, administration of prescribed medication, and monitoring food intake and physical activity. At IncrediCare, our caregivers focus on diabetes management and ways to provide the best care. 

Diabetes is a serious, chronic condition in which the body has trouble keeping blood sugar in check. Too much sugar in the bloodstream for a long period of time can damage many organ systems. Changes in diet and exercise, however, can do a tremendous amount to help your loved one’s health stay in balance. Many diabetes patients respond well to active disease management.

Being well educated about diabetes can aid in living a healthier life style. Our staff at IncrediCare is educated in not only preparing healthy food but also are trained to encourage our clients to make healthy food choices and to be more independent with managing their diabetes. Also, our staff is educated to closely monitor the client's skin while providing assistance with bathing.

Proper diet and lifestyle modifications are integral parts of treating and managing diabetes, and it is often a caregiver that is fostering and administering these diabetes management techniques. Therefore, it is important for caregivers of diabetic patients to become educated about the disease and proper diet and lifestyle routines for those with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. This is where IncrediCare comes in. 

At IncrediCare our diabetes care plan includes:

  • Assistance with a wide spectrum of daily activities, including healthy meal preparation, bathing, and walking
  • Companionship and support 
  • Nutritious meal preparation
  • Insulin injections/checking blood sugar
  • Implementing an appropriate exercise regimen

Consulting with a registered dietician or diabetes educator is recommended for diabetic patients and their caregivers to develop an individualized disease management plan. 

Our exceptional team of registered dieticians and specialized staff at IncrediCare is dedicated to educating diabetic patients, families, and caregivers about properly managing the disease.
