The prevalence of diabetes mellitus in older adults continues to increase and their health care is often suboptimal. The chronic care model discussed in this article provides a framework for change in the practice and organization of care for chronic illnesses, including diabetes. This model facilitates optimal care of both individuals and populations, including older adults with diabetes. Evidence-based, clinical interventions that can be implemented in the physician's practice are discussed.
