Weight Management For Older Australians

Eating well and drinking plenty of water is important for your health and well-being. As we age it can be harder to maintain a nutritious and healthy eating plan, and unplanned weight loss or weight gain can be difficult to manage. The first step is understanding that help is at hand. Nutritional advice and help at home can make an enourmous difference.

Weight management for older Australians

Older people can be at risk of malnutrition if they depend on others to provide their food. Unplanned weight loss can impact your general well-being and quality of life and put you at risk of serious health issues such as falls, hip fractures, poor wound healing and malnutrition.

We want to ensure that you stay healthy so that you can live at home for longer. Our team of nutritionists and health partners can not only help plan your meals, we can provide the in-home care you need to prepare them too.

Treating unplanned weight loss

  • Discuss your diet with a nutritionist
  • Plan your meals
  • Smaller meals more often
  • Keep snacks close at hand
  • Take nutritional supplements
  • Seek in-home care and support
  • Discuss foods you like and don’t like
  • Get out with friends and eat socially
  • Check your dental health
  • Exercise fuels a healthy appetite
