Malnutrition is a significant issue – research indicates, 40% of community living adults are at risk of malnutrition or are malnourished and 50% of Residential Aged Care Facility (RACF) residents are malnourished .

The negative consequences of malnutrition can severely affect a persons quality of life, independence and health status and place an increased burden on RACFs and community carers.


Our Aged Care Nutrition Advisory Service provides a range of services for RACFs and respite centres to assist in the prevention and management of malnutrition, including, menu assessments, staff professional development and training and resources and information


Our Aged Care Nutrition Advisory Service has provided services for over 15 years and currently works with 120 RACF’s in Queensland
