Change is hard — get the support you need

Have you tried to make changes in the past only to find yourself back in your old habits, still headed in the wrong direction?

This time, give yourself some needed support. Check out these two resources from Lake Regional.

Diabetes Education. If you have already been diagnosed with diabetes — recently or years ago — Lake Regional's diabetes education program provides motivation, support and hope. Learn how to plan healthy meals, become more active, manage stress and cope with the daily tasks of living with diabetes. Call 573.302.2725 to learn more.

Nurse Support. If you have diabetes or prediabetes, it's likely you also have other ongoing medical issues, such as high blood pressure, arthritis or obesity. Managing multiple chronic conditions can be tough — Lake Regional's Palliative Chronic Care Management program helps with extra one-on-one support. A registered nurse serves as your case manager. This nurse calls at least once a month to see how you are doing, and you can call your nurse as often as needed with questions. Ask about your conditions, tests, treatments, medications, appointments and other concerns. To be eligible, you must have at least two chronic conditions, be enrolled in Medicare and have a Lake Regional primary care provider. Call 573.302.2281 to learn more.
