Aged care providers can continue to provide high-quality evidence based nutrition care through these challenging times. Dietitians guidance and advice is essential to maintain the health and quality of life for aged care residents.
NPA Hint 9.
Are you limiting visitors coming in to your aged care home? NPA Dietitians can offer remote consulting by logging on to your electronic record system externally. Conversations using the phone, Zoom or Skype can be conducted to gain a further understanding of the resident's situation. NPA Dietitians will then be able to communicate a formal nutrition care plan and document directly into the resident's file. This maintains an efficient, evidence based, high quality service for our most vulnerable loved ones.
If you are concerned about your family member's nutrition or your resident's nutrition, give us a call to learn how we can assist during this unprecedented time.
