Diabetes is found to be one of the fastest growing chronic diseases with a high incidence among older people, and in residential care homes the prevalence of diabetes can be as high as 25% percent. A range of complications can develop following the onset of the disease. The prevention of these complications is in line with the emphasis that is being placed on health promotion and the prevention of ill health in current health strategies. This article will discuss a district nurse's approach to health improvement through dietary management of diabetes for elderly residents with type 2 diabetes living in a care home. The PRECEDE-PROCEED health promotion model chosen to assess the learning needs of the residents and to structure the implementation and evaluation of the health promotion project was good guidance and will form the structure for this article.
