Alexandra Auld BN&D APD (Hons)
Alexandra is a compassionate and empathetic member of Optimum Intake’s Community Aged Care Team. She understands the need to advocate for the elderly within our community and the importance of providing a continuation of nutritional support to those that reside in their own homes which often makes accessing services difficult.
Alexandra believes that a high standard of nutritional support comes from continual skill development, working collaboratively with multi-disciplinary professionals, her clients and their supportive networks to bring about patient-centred care.
Alexandra joined the Optimum Intake Team in February 2022. She graduated from a Bachelor of Nutrition and Dietetics (Honours) and has gained status as an Accredited Practising Dietitian (APD) and a member of the Dietitians Association Australia.
Aged Care has always been a passion of Alexandra’s after being so close to her grandparents growing up. She believes that we all have something to learn from this population group and treats each client with warmth and understanding.
Outside of work, Alexandra enjoys spending time with her nearest and dearest and engaging in self care practices such as horse riding, walking her dog – Lily, and going for walks on the beach. Alexandra looks forward to assisting you in achieving optimum nutrition and comfort care.
