At nursing homes, the goal is to maximize the residents’ quality of life while meeting their needs throughout their stay. Malnutrition is one of the most common issues in geriatrics care. Studies show that malnutrition is associated with an increased risk of falls, infections, healing time, pressure ulcers, hospital admission, hospital readmission, as well as medical costs.
Dietitians play a vital role in preventing and managing malnutrition among residents in nursing homes. At Homey, we provide nutrition care by performing malnutrition risk assessments, identifying malnutrition risk factors and providing the appropriate personalized nutrition care. On top of that, Homey will get the meals covered from breakfast to supper!
