Diabetes Information and Resources


  • More than 1.5 million new cases of diabetes are diagnosed every year.
  • Almost 25 percent of people over the age of 65 have diabetes.
  • More than 90 percent of diabetics have Type 2 diabetes.
  • For a great resource on diabetes health, visit the Canadian Diabetes Association.

Other agencies cannot compare to Right at Home Canada's service. When I use Right at Home to place a caregiver into someone's home, I know they not only come to do their job, they also build relationships. Their intake process is in-depth in order to help place staff that will fit the patients' needs. I think this is the cornerstone of so many happy patients. They have a genuine interest and passion for the elderly.
