How can Food Solutions help Rest Homes?
Food Solutions offers a comprehensive nutritional consultancy service for your rest home. Fiona Boyle is a New Zealand Registered Dietitian with more than 20 years experience. Food Solutions is based in Mount Maunganui but can provide a service throughout the Bay of Plenty area.
A nutrition service is an essential aspect of rest home care. Rest homes today typically cater to the frail elderly rather than the well elderly. Nutritional needs of the elderly are complex and require careful assessment by an experienced dietitian.
Food Solutions can help you set up systems to ensure you can quickly identify residents at risk of nutritional deficiencies.
If necessary, Fiona will help you develop a nutrition policy for your site.
Fiona offers on-site visits and can complete individual dietary assessments for any residents you have concerns about. If a resident needs special nutritional supplements on prescription she can help to arrange this.
Fiona has more than 10 years experience assessing rest home menus.
Fiona can help you with ongoing training for your nursing and food service staff, including in-service training on a range of topics such as diabetes, unintentional weight loss, nutrition for wound care, updates on nutritional products.
