Ngaire is committed to helping adults over 65 cheat ageing and cognitive decline through age appropriate diet and nutrition
Ngaire is a fully qualified, medically trained dietitian with a passion for, as well as a professional speciality in nutrition, ageing and brain health.
With a deep appreciation of the benefits and pleasures of real food, Ngaire is intent on alerting adults, especially those approaching, or already embracing, their later years to their unique nutritional needs. But as well, she is one of a committed group working tirelessly to ensure that the frail elderly, often in assisted care, have the very best food possible available to them, enriching lives as well as assisting independence as much as possible.
Most people - be they frail or fighting fit - are unaware that public health messages which are ideal for younger adults can instead be unhelpful, even harmful, for those entering their senior years. Ngaire is driven to raise awareness of the unique nutritional needs of ageing to ensure older people can thrive instead of suffering unnecessary physical and mental frailty and decline.
Being highly accomplished in translating complex science into everyday language, Ngaire has written three books for the everyday reader. They combine evidence based science with decades of clinical experience and provide sensible, practical advice to all older people, as well being an excellent resource for anyone working in aged or community care or caring for an older family member or friend.
Ngaire is an engaging and informative speaker and communicator, who presents locally and internationally to both lay and professional audiences, and is considered an authority in nutrition, ageing and brain health.
