The alarming explosion of type 1 and type 2 diabetes in the United States and internationally has been called a “modern pandemic.” Skilled nursing facilities have seen similar growth in the number of residents suffering from both types of diabetes. Addressing the issue head-on, the Royal Health Group has joined forces with the world-renowned Joslin Diabetes Center to make our Royal Innovation: Diabetes Care program the gold standard in the skilled nursing industry, utilizing Joslin’s Diabetes Specialty Services program.
The new Joslin program at Royal Health Group focused initially on our facilities in Braintree and New Bedford, but the program is now being installed at Royal Fairhaven, and eventually, the program will be available at all the centers of the Royal Health Group. We believe Joslin’s expertise will make our diabetes program the unchallenged leader in the skilled nursing field, with the ability to prevent and recognize diabetes complications early for appropriate treatment, reduce emergency room visits and hospitalizations, and assure that diabetes medical management standards are met at all times. We are committed to ensuring the “Royal Standard of Excellence” in everything we do, and that includes improving the lives of those in our care with diabetes.
