Older adults with diabetes need to make many decisions about managing their diabetes to stay healthy. Diabetes management tasks may be easy for some older adults to do on their own while others may need help from a family member or friend. People at risk for type 2 diabetes may also need encouragement and support in taking steps to prevent or delay the disease. This page has resources that a caregiver can use to help a loved one stay on track with diabetes self-management or diabetes prevention.
