Eating a healthy and well-balanced diet is just as important for the elderly as any other age group.

Residents in aged care can become vulnerable to malnutrition due to complications such as dysphasia, diabetes, depression, or even the physical inability to feed themselves. The solution to ensuring optimum health for each resident is to have a professional dietitian identify these issues and give you the tools and guidance to overcome them.
