Caring for the Aging Population with Diabetes
Scherrie Keating, RN, BSN, CDCES, CDP, CDC, NDPP, Lifestyle Coach and Ageless Grace Educator, founded Diabetes Kare Consulting, LLC, to help people prevent and manage diabetes when she learned of the pre-diabetes epidemic in the United States. A registered nurse for over 36 years, Scherrie uses her passion, personal cancer journey and expertise to inspire people to make small but significant changes towards living a healthier life. According to the American Diabetes Association, approximately 25% of people over the age of 65 have diabetes, and that number is expected to increase significantly in the coming decades. Care of these individuals is complicated by the normal aging process and long-term effects of glycemic control. Keating's program focuses on the integral role health professionals and caregivers play in helping older adults living with diabetes achieve individualized treatment goals, reduce risks of complications, emergency room visits and hospitalizations, and improve longevity and quality of life.
Her keynote will close Virtual MAIA at 12 p.m. CDT on Thursday, August 27.
