Menu Assessments for Aged Care Facilities
Malnutrition is a significant issue – research indicates, 50% of Residential Aged Care Facility (RACF) residents are malnourished.
Food is also an important part of a quality life for people living in residential care. Many facilities require the expert input of an Aged Care Dietitian to develop to maintain suitable menus.
Nutrition Australia Qld assesses facility menus and foodservice in line with the Commonwealth Accreditation Standards. We provide recommendations and support to improve food service provision to their residents
The RACF’s we have worked with have responded well to our recommendations and support, and have worked towards improving the food options they provide to residents
