In the fall of 2012, OMNI Healthcare gathered stakeholders to address the problem of diabetes in long term care. They established a Diabetes Advisory Team to work collectively on the development of a comprehensive program to effectively manage the complex care needs of residents living with diabetes. The program was piloted at Riverview Manor, and has now been launched in all 17 OMNI homes.
