Welcome to the Diabetes Education and Information Resource
As the UK’s population lives longer, more people are living in care homes or being cared for in their own homes. It is estimated that in the UK the current residential and nursing care home population of 450,000 will increase to 1,130,000 in the next 50 years. It is estimated that approximately 1 in 4 care home residents may have diabetes but there are many within care homes that have undiagnosed diabetes.
