Diabetes Care at Home

Approximately 5% of all Australians have diabetes

Diabetes is a life-changing diagnosis and it can feel daunting to manage diabetes care alone. There are often concerns about new and multiple medications, blood sugar monitoring, appropriate nutrition, well-timed meals and concerns about getting enough exercise safely and comfortably.

The following services can help make everything easier to manage:

  • Blood sugar monitoring – can help identify your response to specific foods and keep your blood sugar from rising and falling too much. If the levels change too dramatically you can be assured you will get appropriate care.
  • Meal planning, shopping, cooking and eating assistancegood nutrition starts with proper planning. Getting the right foods at consistent times in the right quantities can make all the difference to feeling well.
  • Exercise – targeted exercises can help ensure that you maintain the strength, balance and flexibility to go about your day.
  • Foot care – diabetes can damage the nerves in the feet, leading to major complications over time. Regularly checking for cuts and ingrown nails can ensure feet are kept healthy.
  • Case management and assistance with medical appointments – seeing lots of specialists can be confusing and difficult to manage. There is help available for getting to appointments, as well as understanding and implementing medical advice.
