Services Our Homecare Dietitians Provide

Homecare Dietitian: Nutritional Support & Education for PatientsOur homecare dietitians can provide a variety of nutritional support services to patients who have unique dietary needs as a result of chronic diseases or other health conditions.  This includes providing education, counseling, and training for patients and their caregivers.  Therefore, with help from a homecare dietitian, patients can learn to live with illnesses and can continue to live in their home while managing their disease.

The main types of nutritional support services that our homecare dietitians and nutrition support nurses can provide include:

  • Specialized Diet Planning: Specialized diet planning is where a homecare dietitian works with a patient to create an individualized diet plan that can address the patient’s special health needs.  This also includes education from the homecare dietitian for a patient and his or her family members that focuses on nutrition concerns pertaining to a patient’s particular illness.
  • Enteral Nutrition: Enteral nutrition is a nutrition support service for patients who have functioning digestive tracts, but as a result of a medical condition, are unable to receive nutrients by mouth.  This is commonly required for stroke patients who have trouble swallowing, patients with neuromuscular diseases, or patients with head or neck cancer.  Therefore, the patient receives nutrition through a feeding tube placed in the patient’s stomach or intestine.
  • Total Parenteral Nutrition (TPN): This nutrition support service is for patients who are unable to receive nutrients by mouth or feeding tube.  Therefore, it uses home infusion services to supply patients with the balanced nutrition as prescribed by their physician through an IV needle.
