A diabetes diagnosis can increase the likelihood of an older adult developing both vascular as well as neurogenerative, Alzheimer’s type, diagnosis by 1.5 to 2.5 times1. Keeping your diabetes managed can reduce that risk significantly.
I hear many clients confidently tell me that they effectively manage their diabetes. When I press them further, they admit they are not consistently, checking blood sugars, eating a diabetic friendly diet and taking their medications as prescribed. They admit great variability in the blood sugar levels, some too low many too high above the targeted range. Any of these situations can cause damage to not only your cognitive abilities, kidney functions but also put you at a higher risk for falls and hospitalizations.
Many older adults are overwhelmed by this process, it very time consuming and intensive. Alliance Senior Care’s Get Well-stay well program is designed to support you in managing your Diabetes and maintain wellness.

– Personalized nutrition plan including, meal planning and preparing meals
