Dietitian Consultations

with disability & aged care experts

Food Answers offers professional, best practice medical nutrition consulting services for the residents of your aged care facility, adult disability group home and community.
Adults may need help with their diet due to age, mental illness, disability or other health problems. So it’s vital to understand their issues and develop a nutritional care plan for optimal health.
Our dietitians understand each resident is different, so our consultations are tailored to their dietary needs.

Improving quality of care with a dietitian consultation

Improve your resident’s quality of life with dietitian consultations to help prevent some of these common issues:

rapid or unplanned weight loss

This may be due to medication side effects, advanced chronic illness, issues with swallowing, chewing and more.

malnutrition is a real concern

Aged or disabled adults have mobility, appetite, swallowing and dental issues making it more difficult to get enough nutrition.

pressure injuries and wounds

Adequate hydration and nutrition may assist in healing adults identified at risk of malnutrition and pressure injuries.

keeping up fluids and dehydration

Activity, illness and disability levels largely affect hydration. For aged care facilities, our highly trained dietitians also offer nutrition and hydration audits for ACFI accreditation.

low blood glucose levels

Hypoglycaemia is a concern for diabetes sufferers or those who are missing meals. A dietitian consultation helps you learn strategies to keep blood glucose levels balanced.

constipation in adults in care

This affects the aged and those with disabilities like cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis or spinal injuries due to lower fibre and fluid, mobility, changes in gut behaviour and some medication.

This is a real issue in aged care and disability facilities, impacting on illness, wound recovery times and overall wellbeing. Up to 70% of aged care residents suffer from this issue.
