Diabetes Care: It’s never easy to put your loved one into assisted living, but the decision also becomes more complicated when your aging loved one has diabetes.
The problem is that diabetes management becomes particularly challenging as a person ages, especially if there is any form of dementia present. And because a diabetic must maintain a strict diet in order to help control their blood sugar levels, many older people find it difficult to properly stave off diabetes’ most harmful effects because they simply aren’t able to monitor their blood sugars, administer insulin, or cook for themselves anymore. At Serenity Gardens Assisted Living, meals are personalized according to the Provider’s order as it relates to the disease process.
Insulin Care: Assisted living homes are an excellent option for the diabetic.
At Serenity Gardens Assisted Living we provide the specialized care that the diabetic requires.

The trained Medication technician along with the Nurse Practitioner monitors and documents your loved one’s glucose as per Provider’s order. We medicate as per Provider’s order and ensure that the Hemoglobin A1C is done as ordered and results are checked and reported back to the Provider for evaluation. The Serenity Gardens Assisted Living and staff, understands that diabetic management is a lifesaving service.

This is a very important aspect of managing diabetes. The food that the diabetic eats can control the amount of sugar in the body.

Here, meals are prepared under the guidance of a dietitian who has a specialized knowledge in preparing food that is healthy for the diabetic.
