Diabetes Management

“Once you get a diabetes diagnosis, the one thing that happens is…nothing,” Viola Davis said in her latest interview on Live with Kelly and Ryan. While discussing her pre-diabetes diagnosis and new documentary, A Touch of Sugar, Viola touches on how diabetic patients can feel isolated and hopeless. If you feel as alone as she did when diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes, we’re here to provide the support you need!

Diabetes Management classes will allow you to discover how to balance healthy eating and activity to maintain blood sugar levels. We’ll show you how to select healthy food and recognize carbs, fats, and proteins. You’ll learn the impact of high and low blood sugar levels. Primarily, you’ll learn how to set goals for day-to-day management.

“Not in This Alone” – Caregiver Class Reviews

We wrapped up our latest Powerful Tools for Caregivers class at Seton Medical Center in Harker Heights last night. It was a great class filled with sharing and eagerness to learn. Here are a few of the reviews from the class participants:

“I wish it was longer so we could have more sessions. I will continue to read the book and get more information. I am glad I attended.”

“I learned new ways to handle caregiving concerns and how to relate to the care recipient better.”

“The classes were fun.  Easy to share and laugh.”

“Every week I came home more positive and more at peace.  My family even noticed the difference.”

“Most important lesson – I need to take better care of me to be a good caregiver.”

“Class is awesome!  Thank you for caring and helping us through our difficult time.”

We’ll have new classes for caregiving, balance, diabetes self-management, and more coming soon!
