Here is what our Diabetes Care Program offers you at Central Neighborhood Health Foundation (CNHF).
CNHF offers a team-based approach to diabetes care to help you manage the condition over the long term.
Personal Health Coach: The uniqueness of our program is that once the patient consent to be enrolled into the program, the patient is assigned to a care coordinator and diabetes peer educator. Together, they will create a plan designed just for the patient, to address their physical and mental health and social service needs, see what works, and adapt what does not. All personal training packages will include:
- Lifestyle evaluation
- Progress and final evaluations
- Realistic goal-setting
- Supervised fitness sessions
- Thorough fitness assessment
Care Coordinator: In addition to face to face consultation, the care coordinator will provide at least 20 minutes of non-face-to-face or in person care management service per calendar month. The care coordinator will use a predetermined database of resources to provide:
- Food banks referrals; clothing assistance referrals;
- housing referrals;
- utility bill assistance program referrals;
- referrals to substance abuse counseling;
- behavioral health, substance use disorders, and mental health referrals;
- referrals to transportation resources;
- referrals for breast cancer screening;
- referrals to nutrition.
Currently, CNHF is actively engaged with the LA County DPSS and obtained a CalFresh Application Assist number to help our low-income patients apply for CalFresh benefits at each Clinic location.
Comprehensive Diabetes Classes: We offer a variety of ongoing diabetes education classes and workshops in English and Spanish to learn healthy lifestyle habits such as cooking and fitness classes, and nutrition counseling. For all other languages, we can provide an interpreter.
