MARCH IS DIABETES AWARENESS MONTH

Diabetes is most definitely deserving of our attention and awareness.

MARCH IS DIABETES AWARENESS MONTH

MARCH IS DIABETES AWARENESS MONTH

The good news, however, is that much can be done to manage and in some cases even reverse the symptoms of diabetes. Adhering to a plan that includes education on the disease process, following a healthy diet and exercise regimen, and learning about the importance of medication compliance, foot care, and diabetic testing can mean much better outcomes.

Diabetes can impact a person not only physically, but emotionally as well. Many living with diabetes feel depressed and overwhelmed by the disease. They may avoid talking about their diabetes with family and friends and feel as though the disease is conquering them.

Home care services through Serving Seniors can help to promote better health for the person working to manage their diabetes. By providing education, support and encouragement, Serving Seniors’ staff can help them maintain their compliance with the plan developed for them by their health care team.

If someone you know or love has diabetes, let’s use March, Diabetes Awareness Month, as an opportunity to reach out to them. Ask them how they are doing and how you can help!

Joan Sardino

Joan Sardino has held key positions in operations management, customer service and logistics. Her mission today is to empower seniors to live independently in their homes for as long as possible. Joan oversees a staff of experienced, patient caregivers dedicated to senior care and companionship. Serving Seniors provides service to the senior community in Syracuse and the surrounding area (Clay, Cicero, Liverpool, Baldwinsville, Central Square).

Most seniors can live independent lives for quite some time with just minor assistance. Family and friends cannot always be there to help with daily tasks, but Serving Seniors can help fill the need for transportation, errands, housekeeping, and more. Just a few hours a week can enhance your senior’s independence, happiness and overall quality of life.

Joan assists concerned families seeking a trained caregiver who will treat their loved ones with dignity, respect and compassion. Serving Seniors provides the highest level in-home non-medical care and companionship. Families and seniors can be assured of friendly, personalized service from dedicated, compassionate caregivers.
