Diabetes Care in Brea, CA

In-Home Caregivers for Elders & Seniors

When you have an Elderly or Senior loved one who has Diabetes, it can be worrisome because you want to be sure that they are maintaining their health. Whether it’s taking insulin medication at the proper time with Type 1 Diabetes or maintaining a healthy lifestyle with Type 2 Diabetes, it’s important to consistently lead a healthy lifestyle in order to prevent complications of the disease.

Diabetes occurs when blood sugar levels in the body are too high and won’t stay at normal levels because the body doesn’t produce insulin (Type 1) or the body’s insulin production is inadequate/the body doesn’t respond properly to insulin (Type 2).

A-1 Home Care & A-1 Domestic Professional Services provides Diabetes Care in Brea, CA no matter what type of Diabetes your Elderly or Senior loved one has or how advanced the disease might be.

Our Diabetic Caregivers have the main focus of helping your loved one lead a healthy lifestyle to lead a normal life that can be free of complications such as neuropathy, eye problems, skin problems, heart problems, hearing loss, foot problems, or gum disease.

Regularly eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, monitoring blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and cholesterol, and taking any required medication are some of the tasks that our caregivers can provide assistance with in addition to any other activities of daily living your loved one needs.
