When my family sold our house and moved in with my parents, we had no idea what life was about to bring us. Throughout the next year, I watched my parents endure sickness after sickness and surgery after surgery. It was rough. I wasn’t ready to lose my parents. And as I waited for my mother to get out of open heart surgery, I knew something had to change. I knew I would have to take care of them and become their caregiver.
At first, it was hard. I had to learn everything about their medical histories and know what medications they needed at all hours of the day.
After a while, we all got used to our new lives, but I was still struggling with my father’s sugar cravings. I had tried everything to curb them, but he still craved so much sugar. Knowing that sugar can lead to so many adverse health effects, I knew I needed to get his cravings under control and help manage his blood sugar better.
That’s when I found the Sam’s Club Caregiver Program. The program makes it so much easier to get everything I need to take care of my parents better. The products are bulkier and more cost-effective than other stores and Sam’s always has the items I need in-stock whenever I need it. With their discreet shipping options and club pick-up, Sam’s Club gives me the peace of mind to find what I need, when I need it, and how I need it.
The Sam’s Club Caregiver Program has all the products my loved ones need including; Depends, Poise, Ensure, and, my personal favorite, Glucerna.
Glucerna is a product that is a Carbsteady. It’s slowly digestible carbohydrates are designed to help minimize blood sugar spikes and taste great while doing it! Available in a variety of flavors, my father says this drink is delicious and taste just like a milkshake, but without all the bad effects of a real milkshake.
When I replace one of my father’s meals with Glucerna, I notice a big difference in his blood sugar throughout the day. When my father drinks Glucerna, in addition to taking his blood sugar medications, he is less hungry and he has less cravings for sugar. As a caregiver, Glucerna is just what I needed to help my father.
Besides just adding Glucerna to my father’s diet, we have made sure to talk to his healthcare provider for a personalized meal plan. If you are a family caregiver to someone who suffers from blood sugar spikes and sugar cravings, Glucerna is a great product for you to try. You can find Glucerna and all of your other caregiver needs online and in-club with the Sam’s Club Caregiver Program.
