If you or a loved one are dealing with diabetes, you can rely on Fayette Home Care and Hospice for the experience and expertise needed to make the difficult transition from hospital to home.

Our skilled nursing staff includes specially trained nurses to help implement a program designed to manage the patient's diabetes. This includes medication management, teaching the self-monitoring of blood-sugar levels, or obtaining any blood specimens ordered by the patient's physician.

While staying in contact with the patient's physician, our nursing staff provides instructions on preventing, recognizing and handling diabetes complications such as hypoglycemia and hyperglycemia. Our nursing staff also gives insulin, and helps establish an insulin plan for patients who need it.

We also offer a variety of private assistance through our private services program. A staff of nurses, home health aides, sitters and housekeepers provide the help that allows people to continue living independently. And we tailor the services to fit with each individual's home-care situation.

Additionally, Fayette Home Care and Hospice offers nutritional counseling to ensure the careful meal planning all diabetics require.

Of course, you and your loved one are not alone in the recovery process. Our caregiver support program helps educate caregivers so they become familiar with the signs and symptoms of trouble and know when the doctor should be called.

Count on Fayette Home Care and Hospice to help bridge the gap between hospital and home.
