Coming Soon ~
Along with our professional care team, we offer a Diabetes Program for residents that require basic diabetes care. Our diabetes program allows new residents to join the community and move in without the fear of having to check their blood sugars on their own. It also allows current residents who may develop diabetes to not worry about being forced to move to a nursing home to have their diabetes managed.
We have partnered with a local care company to offer a diabetes program. By joining together we can provide the right care for someone without moving them out of the home in which they want to age.
What is Diabetes Care?
Diabetes Care, at Magnolia Park Assisted Living, helps our residents with diabetes manage and maintain proper glucose levels in their blood.
For residents who do not require insulin replacement therapy, but who are insulin resistant, Magnolia Park Assisted Living offers corrective assistance in the way of dietary modifications and exercise.
Our secondary goal of our Diabetes Care is to prevent any complications that may result from improper treatment or improper care of our diabetic residents.
How We Care for Residents with Diabetes
Diabetes care is an important part of providing proper care for our residents. Our onsite nurse and a local home care provider we partnered with will help monitor and manage, as recommended by the resident’s doctors, individual diabetes medications. There are certain diabetic needs we are not able to accommodate.
Our staff is qualified and able to assist and help monitor daily diabetes management plans including, but not necessarily limited to:
- Glucose Checks as recommended by the resident’s doctor
- Epipen injections as prescribed by the resident’s doctor
- Nutritional Support for our residents with special nutritional needs and requirements
- Exercise and activities to help maintain balanced blood levels
