Older people are particularly vulnerable to malnutrition. Moreover, attempts to provide them with adequate nutrition encounter many practical problems. Their caregivers must be observant to their loved one’s eating habits to make sure they aren’t at risk of health threats that come with poor nutrition. We, the My Aged Care team, have taken all this into consideration to provide a healthy living and balanced diet for our elderly people. We provide them with 5 nutritious home-cooked meals per day including healthy snacks and our professional team of caregivers ensure our loved ones have their meals at the proper time.For more info on our nursing care services, click here to contact us.
