How Liberty Healthcare and Rehabilitation Services Can Help Those With Diabetes Maintain Their Independence

More than 34 million people in the United States have diabetes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That is more than 10 percent of the U.S. population. Over time, diabetes can damage the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys and nerves, which makes preventative measures so important.


Liberty Healthcare and Rehabilitation Services has a network of skilled nursing facilities that can help seniors manage their diabetes and any health complications that may result from the disease. Older adults with diabetes have special concerns that need to be addressed such as physical activity, medical intervention, hydration, nutrition and a focus on controlling blood sugar and preventing injury. Our skilled nursing facilities are uniquely qualified to meet the needs of older diabetic patients in a safe, medically supervised environment while still encouraging as much independence as possible.


Liberty Healthcare and Rehabilitation Services also provides post-acute care after a hospitalization due to a diabetic complication. If a patient loses kidney function, we can provide dialysis to help manage chronic kidney disease. If an amputation is necessary because of a diabetic complication, we can provide rehabilitation to help patients recover as much function as possible. 


Just because you live with diabetes does not mean you cannot live a healthy, happy and long life. Liberty Healthcare and Rehabilitation Services combines a safe community, personalized support services and a devoted care team available 24 hours a day to administer medications, bridging the gap between self-reliance and supportive living. With our knowledgeable staff, a resident’s diabetes can be managed effectively so they can continue to live a healthy life. Give us a call today to learn more about our services.
