Diabetes Care in New Jersey
Diabetes is one of the most common diseases with almost 10% of the US Population living with it. As we age, seniors living with diabetes face increasing difficulty managing this condition whether it’s Type 1 or Type 2.
TLC’s highly trained Registered Nurses and Certified Home Health Aides can help your loved one manage their diabetes.
Managing diabetes is much more than just checking blood sugar. At TLC we work with you, your loved one and their physician to create a plan of care tailored intended to improve you or your loved ones quality of life, reduce the number of hospital visits, reduce the complications and risk factors associated with diabetes.
We strongly believe in both educating you and your loved one in an effort to avoid diabetes related complications and hospitalizations by encouraging your family members to check blood sugar levels regularly while documenting those results. Knowing what to look for and having a plan of care in place to react to changes in condition are crucial to effectively treating this disease.
Some of the diabetes services we provide and will educate you and your loved ones on include:
- Education concerning the preparation of a well-balanced diet as recommended by your or your loved ones physician.
- Education of what signs to look for to maintain a healthy foot.
- Foot care assessment to prevent or treat diabetic foot ulcers
- Wound care
- Monitor glucose and insulin levels
