Beth Abraham's Adult Day Health Care Program recently invited community seniors to an informative Open House highlighting their new Diabetes Management Program. Nearly 100 members of the community came out to tour the facility and received information on nursing, rehabilitation, and other available services. Live entertainment, raffle prizes, giveaways and refreshments were also available.

As a center of excellence for diabetes management, Beth Abraham's Adult Day Health Care Program's clinical and nursing staff work closely with each registrant's primary care physician to monitor glucose levels, manage medication, prevent wounds and provide skin and foot care for diabetic registrants. Beth Abraham staff work closely with clients and their families in the daily management of diabetes. Adjustments to diet, exercise and medications are important in preventing complications associated with the disease. Referrals to appropriate medical specialists and emergency interventions are provided, as needed.

"We were excited to see so many seniors from the Far Rockaway community join us in learning about our new Diabetes Management Program," said program director Donna Mondestin, who added: "Keeping our seniors healthy and avoiding diabetes-related complications is a top priority at Beth Abraham's Adult Day Health Care Program."

A member of the Beth Abraham Family of Health Services, Beth Abraham's Adult Day Health Care Program serves adults with chronic medical conditions and various physical disabilities throughout Queens, including the Far Rockaway area. Registrants are provided with quality nursing, rehabilitative, nutritional, recreational and social work services in a community setting.
