AB  - PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to design a culturally sensitive
      dyad-level diabetes intervention to improve glycemic control for older Latino
      adults with type 2 diabetes. METHODS: This study used a pretest-posttest
      noncontrol group design. The intervention was developed from formative research
      with Mexican-origin caregiving dyads. The curriculum was adapted from 2
      randomized trials of community interventions specifically designed for Latino
      older adults with type 2 diabetes. The curriculum consisted of communication
      skill-building exercises and dyad decision making on lifestyle changes to improve
      the older adult's blood glucose levels. Thirty-two community-dwelling dyads
      completed a 6-week program of one-on-one sessions with a trained program
      facilitator. Main outcomes were feasibility and acceptability of the Juntos
      program. The authors assessed feasibility by examining participant burden and
      retention and acceptability by participant exit interviews. Although underpowered
      for outcomes, A1C, health status, and dyadic communication were also assessed to 
      evaluate whether trends suggested the effectiveness of the intervention. RESULTS:
      Most participants viewed Juntos as an acceptable program and wanted the program
      expanded in terms of length and scope. All outcomes showed improvement from
      baseline through 6 months postintervention. CONCLUSIONS: Results show that Juntos
      is acceptable to Mexican-origin caregiving dyads and is a promising approach for 
      effectively controlling type 2 diabetes among older Latino adults who have a
      family caregiver.
