In older age, various factors including medical conditions, change in lifestyles or change in appetite can affect the types and amount of food we eat. This can mean that many older adults do not get the nutrients they need, and this can impact on their well-being or exacerbate some chronic illness.
Taking into consideration stages of life, personal taste, ability and social circumstances, a dietitian can assist in a meal plan to meet your nutrient requirements.
A dietitian can provide nutritional advice for a variety of conditions including;
- Diabetes management
- Nutrition in cancer
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Weight management
