The skilled nurses at Allcare Home Health Agency provide the highest quality of in home diabetes care for your loved ones living at home. Diabetes is a progressive disease in which the body has elevated levels of blood glucose because of its inability to produce or respond to insulin normally. Individuals with diabetes have a higher rate of muscle loss, hypertension, heart disease, stroke and even premature death. The disease affects approximately a quarter of seniors over the age of 65. Seniors with diabetes are at an increased risk of depression and cognitive decline ranging from subtle dysfunction to memory loss and dementia, including Alzheimer’s and Vascular Dementia. Other possible complications include a decline in vision and lower extremities.
Seniors with diabetes who have experienced a cognitive decline are often placed in nursing homes because of their doctors’ difficulty in helping them manage glycemic, blood pressure and lipid profiles. That’s where our compassionate skilled nurses come in.
