Millions of Americans struggle with the life-changing impact of diabetes.

Diabetes is a persistent health condition that impacts the body’s ability to convert food into energy.

After consuming food, the body breaks down most of it into sugar (glucose), which is then released into the bloodstream. When blood sugar levels rise, the pancreas is prompted to release insulin. Insulin functions as a key, enabling the entry of blood sugar into the body’s cells for energy utilization.

In diabetes, either the body doesn’t produce enough insulin or it cannot effectively utilize it. Consequently, excess blood sugar remains in the bloodstream. Over time, this can lead to severe health complications such as heart disease, vision impairment, and kidney disease.

Diabetes Care

Diabetes is common, but everyone needs unique care. We encourage those with diabetes and their loved ones to learn about the latest treatments and healthy lifestyle choices.

Good communication with experts can help you feel in control and better manage your needs. No matter where you are in your journey with diabetes, you can still live well. All you need to do is take action and stick with it.

Our team offers complete services to improve patients’ lives. Registered nurses (RNs) work closely with the patient’s doctor to assess diabetes needs and adjust care accordingly. Nurses create personalized plans to help patients control their illness. They monitor blood sugar levels, assist with insulin injections, promote medication adherence, and teach healthy habits. Nurses also make home visits and help patients obtain necessary medications and supplies.

Diabetes Care Management

Without proper self-management, diabetes can lead to severe and potentially life-threatening complications. Untreated or poorly managed diabetes raises the risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, kidney disease, neuropathy, wounds, and blindness.

Skilled nursing care and disease management are essential for patients who need extra care at home. This is especially true for those with diabetic wounds or foot ulcers, individuals starting insulin therapy, those with underlying conditions affecting diabetic control, or those managing multiple medications or frequent hospital visits. 

Our care team offers patients a complete range of services to improve their quality of life. Our registered nurses (RNs) work closely with the patient’s primary care physician to evaluate their needs related to diabetes and make the necessary adjustments to diabetic care management.

Nurses are trained to develop a customized care plan according to the patient’s needs to help the patient gain control of their illness. On a routine basis, nurses help monitor blood sugar levels, assist with insulin injections, ensure the patient is taking medications as prescribed, and educate the patient on making healthy lifestyle choices.

Nurses can make routine home visits and can also assist with obtaining medication and other supplies necessary for care.
