Caring for oneself can be a demanding task for elderly adults who live even the healthiest of lifestyles. So it isn’t hard to imagine how even more difficult it must be for our aging loved ones living with diabetes. Diabetes is a metabolic disease that needs to be treated on a daily basis through exercise, nutrition, and sometimes diabetic medication. Thankfully, Country Club Rehabilitation Campus can provide your elderly loved one with 24-hour care from our trained nurses and caring staff.
While each individual suffers differently from type I and type II diabetes, there are some very general things that can be done to treat and prevent the resulting symptoms. Our trained nurses and staff will educate you and your aging loved ones while helping them accomplish these tasks on a daily basis.
There are two things every individual with diabetes should check to determine their health and the severity of their diabetes.
1. Blood Glucose – Testing your blood glucose levels on a daily basis helps you understand and know your current health and alerts you to any concerns that should be addressed.
2. Feet – Due to the feet naturally having poor blood circulation, having diabetes can significantly worsen this problem and result in some very serious symptoms. Thus, it is advised that you check your feet for any cuts, breaks in the skin, or irritation.
Our nurses and staff will make sure your elderly loved ones get proper exercise that is both safe and beneficial. This exercise is critical for individuals with diabetes because it better controls blood sugar levels, decreases the risk of diabetes, and results in a loss of weight.
Nutrition and Health
Unhealthy eating habits is a great contributor to diabetes, so eating right is an important step in treating your loved ones diabetic symptoms. At Country Club Rehabilitation Campus, our professional chefs and staff will prepare and provide meals and food regiments that are healthy and helpful in treating diabetes.
In addition, our trained nurses will know exactly how to help your aging loved one through other health concerns that may increase the risk diabetes already presents such as other sicknesses, stress, infections, high blood pressure issues, etc.
Preventing Other Diseases
Diabetes can result in other health issues such as heart problems, vascular disease, and kidney functionality. To prevent these diseases and the increasing severity of your aging loved one’s diabetes, our trained nurses and staff make sure your loved one takes all the necessary steps to living a healthy, happy life through regiment, exercise, nutrition, medication, and professional care.
