St. Charles Community Health Center-Norco has Nurse Care Coordinators specifically trained to help a patient control their diabetes. Their nurses meet with patients to help them come up with a dietary plan, set goals and teach them fun and effective ways for lowering their blood sugar levels. AHL’s nurses will help patients beat the needle blues by showing them easy ways to administer and take insulin.
They even offer more support for patients through their monthly “Lunch and Learn” sessions sponsored by Amerigroup. During the sessions, patients and their families can ask questions and get answers regarding their diabetes while enjoying a light lunch. The Care Team will assist them in learning ways to take charge of their health and decrease the negative consequences of diabetes. Classes are taught in both English and Spanish.
Costs for program participation varies based on patients individual insurance provider.
