The main role of the in-home dietitian is to aid in keeping aging seniors at home. This is achieved through the prevention and treatment of malnutrition, improving overall nutrition status, and improving quality of life.
As part of an interdisciplinary team, the dietician will take recommendations from the client’s primary care physician and speech therapist (if needed) to make personalized recommendations with various goals in mind. Recommendations will be relayed to the home health aide who completes grocery shopping and meal preparation. Some things to consider are special medical diets — including diabetic, renal, cardiac, and low sodium diets — weight goals, wound healing, swallowing compromise, and overall nutrition enhancement. If you or your aging loved one has specific concerns about their diet and nutrition, connect with us for your nutrition evaluation.
About A Year Ago
my grandmother's mental state took a turn despite her physical capabilities being second to none. My family hired Angels on Call to assist my grandmother during her morning routine, but we had never thought about what happens when the caregiver leaves. A few weeks into service and my grandmother had taken a hard fall at night and ended up in the ER. After notifying the agency of the occurrence, the owner who is one of the registered nurses of the company arrived at the hospital the next day. Without hesitation she arranged my grandmother's discharge from hospital and had a live-in caregiver waiting for us at my grandmothers’ home. Since the day my grandmother went home with a live-in caregiver, she hasn’t taken a fall. As someone who goes to college half way across the country it is a God-sent knowing there are people like Pam at Angels on Call looking out for my grandmother.” ~ Robert Y.
