The new glucometers provided by the Hayastan Fund will allow for early detection and treatment of diabetes in nursing homes of Yerevan. Armenia Fund Inc. has donated dozens of glucometers to the Nursing Home No. 1, Nork Nursing Home, as well as to the the German Red Cross Baden-Wuerttemberg provincial branch subsidiary in Armenia. These institutions were in dire need of such medical devices. In the Nursing Home No. 1, for instance, 23 patients with diabetes had only one glucometer in common use. There were a few glucometers in Nork Nursing Home, which had got out of order and could not be used anymore.
The new glucometers will be of much use also to the staff of the German Red Cross Baden-Wuerttemberg provincial branch subsidiary in Armenia, as they use them at their home visits to the lonely elderly people.
