Diabetes Care At Home
Lincolnshire & Yorkshire
Diabetes necessitates lifestyle and dietary changes. It can take some time to adapt to and may often come in addition to other conditions. Home care can provide an excellent option to assist people with diabetes or loved ones affected by it so that every aspect can be managed. You can lead a 100% happy and healthy life but may require a little help around the home, which we're glad to provide.
This may take the form of assistance with meal preparation and hydration, regular monitoring of glucose levels, help with medication as well as physical and emotional support.
Our home carers understand all the aspects that are involved with diabetes and will assist in whatever way you require.
Question: What Is Diabetes?
Diabetes affects more than 3 million people in the UK, it can also be present in many people who do not have a diagnosis. It can affect any age, gender or race and this long-term condition will require the management of your lifestyle, diet, sugar intake and exercise.
It is caused because our bodies may not produce enough insulin or the insulin is not working as it should. Normally, our pancreas produces the hormone called insulin which allows glucose to enter cells from the bloodstream. This, in turn, causes glucose to build up in the bloodstream.
Common signs that a person may be diabetic (or hypoglycaemic) may include regular headaches, low appetite, changes in personality, a lack of balance, unusual aggression, dizziness or even loss of consciousness and difficulties with speech and motor function.
It is important that if you or a loved one are experiencing any of the above, you consult the NHS or your GP and get thorough testing and diagnosis.
If left untreated, diabetes can cause further complications such as strokes, heart disease, nerve damage and blindness. The sooner you recognise issues and look for medical support, the more easily the condition can be managed.
How We Can Help Diabetes Home Carers
Our team of carers provide assistance in your home. Allowing you to enjoy the things that matter, with the comfort of knowing that you have the help you need.
Sometimes we all need a little help. This may be the case if you've recently been diagnosed with diabetes. Perhaps you want some help around the home whilst you adjust.
It may just be assistance with meal choices, a healthier diet or cooking and preparation or it could be with more complex things like monitoring your glucose levels and ensuring that medication is applied when you need it.
You should be able to enjoy life without complications and restrictions. Whether you are adjusting to diabetes and need short-term support or may have a loved one with diabetes as and as other complex medical conditions, it is important to know that we can help you.

A Service Tailored To Your Needs What Can Diabetes Home Care Include?
Personal Hygiene Care
Our care staff are well trained and understand that self-care can be a little embarrassing, especially if the duty is shared by loved ones. We'll assist with personal hygiene whilst respecting your dignity and personal space.
Encouraging An Active Lifestyle
Physical activity is equally as important for your body as it is for your mind. Encouraging an active lifestyle will increase fitness, aid balance to prevent falls and benefit your mental health.
Glucose Levels & Medication
There may be numerous reasons that a person is unable to monitor their glucose levels or administer treatments. Our carers will help with every aspect to ensure you are safe and well looked after.
Planning Meals & Shopping
Lifestyle changes can be a great way of managing diabetes. We'll assist with everything from meal plans and shopping to cooking. Healthy choices and a balanced diet can go a long way toward improving your overall health.
It's vitally important that diabetes symptoms are recognised and appropriate action is taken. Noticing short-term symptoms like balance or mood changes along with long-term issues like weight loss is something our carers are trained to do.
Cleaning Services & Laundry
If you are finding basic tasks like laundry or cleaning around the home to be challenging then we can assist with that! Whether it be tidying, dusting, washing clothes and dishes or the dreaded ironing, we're here for you.
You may be concerned that your pets could use a little help too. We love your furry friends. Let us help take care of them with feeding, cleaning up their mess and even taking them for walkies.
