Manage your diabetes – and live better.

Our skilled home aides can help you manage a difficult disease and enjoy a happier, healthier life.

Did you know?

25% of Americans over age 65 have diabetes.

Diabetes is the #1 cause of blindness and kidney failure.

People with type 2 diabetes are 15% more likely to die prematurely. In people with uncontrolled diabetes, that risk jumps to 55%.


Uncontrolled diabetes can be deadly.

Diabetes – a metabolic disorder that causes high blood sugar – is tricky to manage. Left uncontrolled, it can leave you dealing with a host of serious problems.

Side effects associated with diabetes include:

Eye Problems



Blurry vision

Nerve damage - which can result in paralysis of the eye and surrounding tissues

Heart & Organ Conditions

Congestive Heart Failure

Heart Attack

Kidney Disease & Failure

Skin Disease

General Issues

Serious infections, which can turn to gangrene and lead to amputations

Poor circulation, which can increase the risk of amputations


DKA or HHNS - dangerous conditions where too much accumulated sugar can lead to coma or death

You can take the reins.

Serious problems can be prevented with proper management.

Diabetes doesn’t have to take over your life. With the right care plan and a supportive, knowledgable aide, you can maintain a high quality of life.

Preferred aides are specially trained to:

Remind you to take your diabetic medications

Help you prepare wholesome, nutritious meals

Accompany you to all your medical appointments

Assist you with the exercise that's right for you

Monitor your blood pressure to avoid heart problems

Make sure you take enough fluids - and avoid dehydration

Check your feet regularly to maintain good foot care


You can expect a loving aide who will take care of the everyday tasks you find hard – laundry, meals and shopping – while helping you remember your medications (so your blood sugar stays on track).

In other words:

You’ll be able to feel your best…and have the energy to do the things you enjoy.

When you have a loving aide, you don't have to feel so alone.

There for me when I need them.I was dealing with diabetes, high blood pressure, and arthritis in both knees – pain all over the body. I feel sick and helpless. Now I have an aide, and it’s working out; the help is good. Preferred is there for me when I need them.
