Diabetes Support Services

 

Valley Home Care offers a Diabetes Self-Management program for people who are interested in learning how to manage their new diabetes diagnosis or better manage their current diabetes status. The program is a four-week course with two-hour meetings once a week. Each participant is invited to bring a family member or guest for support. Prior to participating in the program, registrants must complete a one-hour individual assessment with a diabetes educator.

Valley Home Care’s Diabetes Self-Management program recently received the prestigious American Diabetes Association Education Recognition Certificate. The American Diabetes Association believes that Valley Home Care’s program offers high-quality diabetes self-management education that is an essential component of effective diabetes treatment.

Class topics include: diabetes knowledge and self-management skills assessment, monitoring and use of blood glucose results, nutritional management, exchanges and carbohydrate counting, individualized meal plan, medication review, changing behavior, coping & psychosocial adjustment, foot care, hypoglycemia/hyperglycemia, exercise and community resources.

Many insurance companies, including Medicare, will cover this program as a benefit to their subscribers. The out-of-pocket costs for the program will depend on the policy coverage and any limitations. The program is covered for all Valley Health System employees enrolled in the System's health plan.
