Nutrition and Hydration Audits

with a specialist aged care dietitian

The nutrition and hydration needs of aged care residents can vary due to their gender, body shape, activity levels, medication, level of illness and disability. Unfortunately, getting enough nutrition and hydration is a frequent issue in aged care homes.
When a resident first enters your residential aged care facility, each client’s nutrition and hydration needs should be assessed with an accredited dietitian. Our dietitian consultations are documented, reviewed and acted upon regularly for more effective nutritional management.
The nutrition and hydration needs of your residents are audited periodically to ensure you comply with the current and new Aged Care Quality Standards effective 1 July 2019. This review also forms part of the Aged Care Funding Instruments (ACFI) accreditation process.
Our goal is to help your nursing home achieve excellence in your ACFI assessment and residential aged care accreditation standards so you stay funded and deliver the best quality of care for your facility.

Dehydration is common

due to a number of factors affecting elderly residents in your aged care home.

swallowing or oral issues making it harder to drink

lower thirst levels amongst seniors

some residents preferring to avoid bathroom visits

limited range of fluids at your care home

illness, medication and more

Some suggested fluids to help meet your hydration accreditation at your aged care home are soups, milk, tea, jelly, coffee, juice, water, cordial, custard and ice-cream.
