Residential Aged Care Facility Services
Individual resident services
Simply Nutrition Dietitians service numerous nursing homes and aged care facilities around the Sunshine Coast, Caboolture, Gympie and North Brisbane areas.
We frequently provide our services on an individual basis to many residents, assisting them with but not limited to weight loss, malnutrition, diabetes - type 1 & 2, healthy eating and Osteoporosis. These services and the recommendations are delivered using current evidence based practice and come with full written reports which are provided to the facility and the residents GP.
Simply Nutrition Dietitians can also assist with the ordering of high energy high protein nutritional supplements for low care DVA residents.
Aged care in-services
Simply Nutrition Dietitians can provide in-services to Residential Aged Care Facility (RACF) nursing and catering staff. Information can be provided on an individual basis for new staff members, however most facilities benefit greatly from a group consultation format where one of our qualified dietitians can come to the facility and discuss one or a number of conditions. Group in-services are delivered in a professional, fun and interactive way, ensuring that each staff member gets the most from their training. To aid in the educational process numerous resources are provided for ongoing reference.
Some of the in-service topics frequently covered include -
Food service menu reviews and assessments
Our dietitians can provide food menu reviews and assessments which once completed include a complete written report with recommendations on how to improve the menu to meet best practice guidelines. During the consultation process we work closely with the appropriate catering staff and Director of Care to ensure that these suggestions are provided with your facility’s needs, resources and budget in mind.
