Watchways™ Diabetic Care Program

This program promotes the self-management and independent monitoring of those with diabetes, enabling them to take control of their lives, sustain healthy personal habits and reduce re-hospitalizations.

Working under the care plan approved by the referring physician, and adapted from the guidelines of the American Diabetes Association, our interdisciplinary team provides a holistic approach that includes: 
  • Instruction in self-injection of insulin
  • Comprehensive patient assessment
  • Instruction in disease process
  • Blood glucose monitoring and glucometer instruction
  • ADA diet instruction and counseling
  • Medication management and education
  • Skin care and personal care instruction
  • Diabetic foot care
  • Individual home exercise programs
  • Prevention of disease-related complications
