Challenges for Senior with Diabetes
Through a combination of lifestyle changes, education, and medication, it is possible to control this disease and improve the quality of life for your loved one. Our communities and the care staff that work there, strive to find solutions to the unique challenges that seniors face with diabetes:
- Medication Administration: For many of our seniors, medication management is a challenge. Our caregivers utilize the latest in medical technologies and innovations to ensure that medications are taken properly and as needed.
- Exercise and Physical Limitations: As we age, we naturally may experience a lack of mobility. For a senior with diabetes, this can drastically limit their ability to engage in much-needed physical exercise. Caregivers work with diabetes patients to craft an exercise routine that keeps their limitations in mind. Plus, guided programs help them to stay motivated, offering the opportunity to exercise with other residents and friends.
- Healthy Eating: For many seniors, access to adequate nutritional information and dietary planning can be a challenge. At Platinum Communities, we offer delicious and nutritious chef-inspired cuisine, as well as meal planning assistance designed with the needs of a diabetic in mind.
At Platinum Communities, diabetes care and management is an intrinsic part of our assisted living services. Seniors and their loved ones can learn essential diabetes management practices, including everything from proper dietary habits to wearing proper footwear.
Through personalized attention and tailored programs, we can help seniors live happier, healthier lives while providing family members with a peace of mind. Find out more about caring for an elderly loved one with diabetes. Contact us at [email protected]
