Aged Care Nutrition

Our dietitian team have provided leading aged care nutrition services for over 20 years to many aged care groups over NSW and QLD. As part of our commitment to excellence, we have demonstrated success with improving the quality of life and health of residents while also reducing the spend on supplements and health care costs for our aged care homes through The Lantern Project research studies at Bond University.

Our strategy is two-fold:
improve quality of life by improving resident health and
improve facility efficiency and cost effectiveness.

The Lantern approach

Our innovations can bring wide reaching benefits

  • We use food first

    We have developed a number of low cost and simple solutions which reduce the money spent on expensive supplements.

  • Be the first to benefit from innovation and research

    Through Cherie Hugo’s PhD, we are leading the way in finding innovative solutions to malnutrition and the associated health care costs in aged care facilities.

  • Upskill and save

    We offer education programs for your staff and residents with each of our service packages.

  • Significant discounts on nutritional counselling and support to residents and families

    Signing up to one of our 12 month nutrition service packages means we can pass on significant discounts on our normal rates.

  • Happy staff, happy residents and happy relatives

    Food and meal times can make or break a resident’s day. The dining environment is pivotal to the success of mealtimes. Through our research and ‘The Lantern Project’ we have identified and demonstrated a number of low cost solutions which will lift the mood of residents and staff.

  • Get more for your money

    Our quality nutrition service packages provide fantastic value for money. In addition to significant discounts on our standard consultation fees, aged care homes can access a range of our complimentary nutrition services through our packages which are geared to upskill staff, improve communication and ensure resident nutrition care is second to none.
