Rural Aging Initiative Supports Remote Health Monitoring for Seniors in Lincoln County

Health@Home, a program supported by EHF's Rural Aging Services Initiative, is helping seniors with diabetes in Lincoln County stay on track.  This program is administered by Lincoln County Hospital District #3 and provides seniors with health monitoring equipment and a direct connection by telephone to a nurse in North Carolina who helps participants monitor health indicators like blood sugar, weight, and blood pressure.  Participants with diabetes have seen an average decrease of 2 points in their hemoglobin A1C levels over the first three months of the program, indicating improved control over their diabetes.
