Food in Residential Aged Care
Recently I was asked, along with my colleague Cherie Hugo, to present a webinar to the aged care industry on food.
We wanted to put a case for the value of management, nursing, care and food service staff working with experienced aged care dietitians to maintain the quality of the lives of those living in residential aged care with food.
This is not only food that looks great and makes for an enjoyable meal, but also supports the nutritional needs of residents - helping them remain as independent as possible, reducing falls and pressure ulcers and keeping boy and soul together.
Here is the link to the webinar if you would like to listen. Cherie is up first, then the CEO of an aged care home doing great work in this area and I sum all that up.
