Diabetes Care

Diabetes can be a difficult condition to manage not least because it usually involves some necessary and significant lifestyle adjustments. These changes may affect not only the patient but also their family and their loved ones.  At Cavendish Homecare we are able to support patients who have recently been diagnosed with diabetes or those with chronic Type I or Type II diabetes.  Our specialist diabetic nurses provide advice about the management of the condition and how best to deal with both the short and long-term effects of diabetes.

    CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

    This is why we do.
    What we do.

    Outstanding Care

    Thank you so very much for supporting Lynne through what has been an unprecedented time. Thank you for the outstanding care you all have continued to provide despite hugely difficult times brought about by the Covid virus. The excellent training, attention to detail, organisation, communication devotion and compassion of all of your team during this time and in fact since you agreed to care for Lynne, is an absolute credit to you and our family wish to say a huge thank you to you all. The challenges of late stage MS are huge without the added difficulties of the pandemic. As you are aware without the astute nature and excellent training of your team, the recent situation that occurred for Lynne may have led to a very different outcome. I am so relieved to see Lynne back home and looking more like herself.
