Aged care nutrition and dietary services

At Oxa Care, our dedicated aged care dietitians play a crucial role in crafting personalised dietary plans for residents, addressing individual needs, preferences, and any specific dietary considerations. With a focus on nutritional outcomes, our dietitian ensures that residents receive balanced and tailored meals to support their health and well-being in our aged care community.

Nutrition management and food services

At Oxa Care, we prioritise the well-being of our aged care residents through comprehensive nutrition and dietary management. Our food services are managed by a team of skilled professionals, including food service staff and managers, who work diligently to uphold the highest standards. 

We understand the importance of consistency, and having the same dietitian involved in the nutrition management process fosters continuity and allows for a deeper understanding of each resident's dietary requirements. This collaborative approach ensures that our aged care residents receive delicious, wholesome meals and personalised nutrition support.

We recognise that nutrition is vital to overall well-being in aged care facilities. Our food service managers regularly review residents' dietary needs and preferences, making adjustments as necessary. This commitment to personalised nutrition is complemented by our dedication to providing a holistic approach to care, where nutrition management is seamlessly integrated with other services to enhance our residents' overall quality of life.
