Diabetes Care

With the growing number of people with diabetes VNA Community Healthcare has formed a team that brings together staff with specialized knowledge.  The team meets regularly to review care for patients receiving care for diabetes.  In addition to monitoring blood glucose levels, diabetic patients may benefit from monitoring of their hearts through telehealth, counseling on appropriate diet, exercise and monitoring through health promotion activities and recommendations for appropriate footwear.

Diabetes Care Makes Sense When:

  • you have been newly diagnosed with diabetes
  • your home program needs to be re-established after a stay in the hospital
  • you and your family need education in how to administer insulin
