Newbridge: Training for Carers
January 20, 2016
Please note, these events are only open to the staff of the organisation hosting the training the session.
Did you know?
- 61% of people living with Intellectual Disabilities are at risk of Pre-Diabetes or Type 2 diabetes
- 16% of people with Intellectual Disabilities aged over 40 are already living with Type 2 diabetes
With this in mind Diabetes Ireland have developed a programme to provide training to the carers of those living with Intellectual Disabilities. Our healthcare professionals, Sinead Hanley and Pauline Dunne, will be visiting organisations across the country to deliver a practical interactive awareness session to carers of people with Intellectual Disability. These training sessions aim to provide carers with the skills to help prevent Type 2 diabetes and manage those already living with the condition.
If you are interested in hosting a session please contact Diabetes Ireland on 01 842 8118.
