Diabetes Education

Support, information, care and advice for people concerned about diabetes.

What we provide:

Our specialist staff can support you to prevent or delay onset of diabetes, or to understand and manage all types of diabetes in ways that best suit you. We can:

  • provide individual appointments, group sessions and home and community visits (in some circumstances)
  • help you understand what diabetes means, how it develops and who is at risk
  • give support so you can make changes and choices to prevent diabetes or improve control and health
  • help you use a blood glucose meter, tablets or injected medication effectively (including adjusting doses, if your doctor agrees)
  • assess your diabetes treatment and suggest changes  to improve management to your doctor
  • work with you in partnership with your GP, specialist doctor or hospital services.

Our services are:

  • free
  • educational
  • supportive
  • available in languages other than English.

Priority is given to people living or working in the City of Yarra, but services are available to everyone. We prefer a Medicare referral where possible.

Support groups

We host support groups in various community languages.

Interpreters

Telephone and on-site interpreters can be arranged in any language at no cost to you.

 North Richmond Community Health’s Diabetes Education service is supported by the Victorian Government.
