An in-home personal care aide gives peace of mind for those with diabetes. Our caregivers provide support and assistance to Diabetic patients and their families. Diabetes patients who would benefit from in-home care are those with frequent hospital admissions, diabetic ulcers or memory issues. Our caregivers assist with:
- Medication monitoring and reminders
- Identifying symptoms of low or high blood sugar levels
- Encouraging exercise
- Reminders for good hygiene habits to include oral care
- Light housekeeping
- Getting help in an emergency situation
Our Caregivers can prepare meals for you in accordance with meal plans set by a doctor (e.g. low sodium, low cholesterol, low fat, vegetarian, or vegan), promote healthy skin care, take you to doctors appointments, and help with healthy food choices and encourage exercise. By giving you the daily help you need, in-home personal care aides can also help you ease the stress that comes with managing diabetes, stress can raise insulin resistance and lead to high blood sugar levels. In-Home care offers a solution to lessen the impact the disease has on one’s health and well-being.
Keeping in mind every case of diabetes is unique, Virginia Kares Home Care Services works hand in hand with your health team and family members to keep you on track with your health plan.
Part of our caregivers’ job is to help you stay on track by maintaining good eating habits as well as shopping for the right foods, while being there for supervision,, reminders on checking blood sugar levels and taking medicines.
Let Virginia Kares Home care Services be the ones to help you have a comfortable quality life in your own home!
