With proper care and management, diabetes can be addressed to support overall health and quality of life.
As the general population continues to age, the number of adults 65 years or older affected by diabetes is also increasing. An estimated 33% of adults aged 65 or older have diabetes. This population is more at risk of developing diabetes-related complications like hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), kidney failure and heart disease than younger people living with diabetes.
Collaborative care is very important for all people living with diabetes. However, it is extremely critical for some older adults who have complex health care needs. Some important care considerations include:
Supporting “at home” needs
Monitoring interactions between medications
Family or community support
Access to proper medications and food
Older adults should consider lifestyle changes such as exercise, nutrition, managing blood sugar, limiting alcohol, and avoiding smoking. Progression from prediabetes to diabetes can be slowed with a diabetes prevention program.
A healthcare provider will assess your overall health and develop the best care plan based on personal goals, functional status, geriatric syndromes, sarcopenia, and other chronic illnesses. Care plans are customized and different for each person.
At Jasper Lodge, we help our diabetic residents to better manage their conditions through continuous monitoring and stabilizing, specialized diets for sugar control, as well as providing regular exercise programmes for various health benefits.
