Caregivers Weekend at Barton Center

March 10, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - March 12, 2017 @ 10:00 am


This weekend is tailored for people who want to learn how to properly take care of a loved one with type 1 diabetes. It’s meant to teach people all the skills they need for diabetes management: checking blood sugars, using pumps/ continuous glucose monitoring, counting carbs, dosing insulin, and everything in between. Parents, aunts, uncles, grandparents, family friends, babysitters, anyone and everyone are welcome to come with their loved one who has type 1 diabetes and learn more about t1d and how to care for someone with it. Learning takes place in a relaxed, fun camp environment. This has been a life-changing program for many of our participants. One participant wrote, “I feel more confident in managing my granddaughter’s diabetes. It was good to share with other caregivers in a cooperative, non-rush situation.”
