Home care services help people manage chronic conditions to lead full and productive lives. It is estimated that nearly 25% of individuals with a chronic medical condition face limitations to their activities like needing assistance to walk or perform personal tasks such as dressing, bathing, or preparing meals. To help with this, ComForcare franchises provide high quality home care services for individuals dealing with the challenges of a chronic condition or illness such as diabetes.
The American Diabetes Association reports that nearly 10 million people age 65 or older in the U.S. have diabetes – over one quarter of the senior population. Furthermore, many of these individuals are simultaneously managing another chronic condition such as heart disease, arthritis, or cancer.
Lead a More Rewarding Life
By providing home care assistance for seniors with diabetes, ComForcare home care franchises help clients lead productive and rewarding lives. Home care services lower the risk of isolation, depression, and a decline in health that can result in recurring hospital stays.
The experienced home care providers at each ComForcare franchise are trained to provide care to people of all ages and help them live more comfortably. For diabetes patients, home care providers can assist with meal planning and preparation, provide medication reminders, and assist clients with exercise.
Other home care services offered include:
– Transportation assistance
– Light housekeeping
– Help with laundry
– Medication reminders
Home care services help clients with diabetes more successfully maintain their health. This is important because when someone with diabetes gets sick, they can have a harder time controlling their blood glucose level. Being sick stresses the body, which causes glucose levels to rise, and it is important to makes sure those levels don’t get too high. Home care services providers can help clients prepare and eat healthy foods that will help manage blood glucose levels. The American Diabetes Association recommends eating a healthy diet or whole grains, beans, fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy products, and lean meats.
Home care service providers can also provide transportation assistance for diabetes patients to help them get to appointments with doctors, dieticians, or nutritionists. Home care providers will help clients follow prescribed diets and nutrition suggestions from their doctor and provide medication reminders for any prescriptions.
With the help of a home care service, individuals with diabetes can improve their level of independence and enhance their quality of life. To find out more, visit ComForcare Home Care online to locate the nearest ComForcare franchise in your area.
