dc.description.abstractDespite the high prevalence of diabetes in older people, there is limited information on optimal methods to support their diabetes management, including how to incorporate technology. This article reports on the results of semi-structured interviews with 41 adult participants with type 2 diabetes (mean age 74 ± 7 years) on their perspectives of a new model of care (the Older People With Type 2 Diabetes–Individualizing Management With a Specialized Community Team [OPTIMISE] program) for older people with type 2 diabetes. The OPTIMISE program involved telemedicine consultations, home visits by a credentialed diabetes educator, and intermittent flash glucose monitoring. Human connection and relationships were key to the positive perspectives expressed by participants in this program that used technology to enhance the care of older people in their homes.
