About our Residential Aged Care Team
If you’re looking for Aged Care Dietitians who deliver friendly, professional, and effective services, then we are pleased to introduce our Residential Aged Care team. Our specialised Residential Aged Care team works across sites in Newcastle, Central Coast, Sydney and remotely to rural areas, improving food and nutrition provision to support aged care consumers.
Enjoyable food and nutrition is essential for the physical, mental, social and emotional wellbeing of older Australians. Optimum Intake Dietitians promote food as ‘more than just nutrients on a plate.’ We aim to bring food to life, to make it appealing as it has a significant impact on health outcomes.
Our Residential Aged Care team are passionate and driven to increase access to good quality, nutritious foods and decrease the rates of malnutrition. Optimum Intake Dietitians does not accept that weight loss is a normal part of the aging process, rather a change in dietary and feeding requirements. Consumers often experience a small appetite or may have medical issues that make eating more complex. This is why we provide support to ensure our consumers are as nourished as possible.
We work collaboratively with Aged Care Facilities, supporting our Facility Managers, Care Managers, Chefs, Catering Managers and teams to improve food provision and the meal time experience for those who need it most. Optimum Intake Dietitians are the specialists in nutrition and food provision for your Aged Care Facility.
