At Eskaton, we have designed our Diabetes Wellness Program to provide older adults with the five key components to effective diabetes management – including supporting those with vision impairment, limited dexterity due to arthritis, dementia or other cognitive changes.
Education is key to understanding how diabetes affects your body. Licensed nurses will assist with monitoring blood glucose and provide education on how to manage your diabetes appropriately. You and your family are involved through the education process of your personal plan of care.
Diet is important and eating healthy is key to managing diabetes well. We feature a varied menu with diabetic-friendly options at every meal. We’ll teach you how to choose wisely.
Communication is key to providing a seamless diabetes treatment by involving residents, families, primary care physicians and staff to coordinate care and support.
Exercise is key to building and maintaining strength, cardiovascular wellness, a healthy metabolism, and emotional well-being. We give you opportunities – and show you how – to exercise right.
Medication is key to managing diabetes by taking the right prescriptions and supplements at the right time.
