At Registered Dietitians Services, we pride ourselves to offer our clients excellent dietetic consultations in order to reach our client’s target. We understand and empathise with our elderly and therefore we are pleased to inform you that we also offer home visits. Home visits are offered if you or your loved ones are bed-bound or have difficulty in mobility for example on tube feeding. Tube feeding can be either nasogastric tube (NGT) feeding or percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy (PEG) feeding. This service is offered for both adults and children.
Despite the fact that this service is offered in your own home we still offer the same professional services. In fact, we bring with us all the equipment necessary for a smooth dietetic consultation.
During the dietetic consultation we offer an assessment of anthropometric measures, necessary according to your case. Secondly, we analyse any blood results if provided and check for any medical conditions (link to view certification) such as diabetes, heart disease, gastrointestinal problems, kidney disease, liver disease, and mental health illness such as anxiety and depression. As a result, we can calculate your metabolic rate and determine your daily calorie, carbohydrate, protein and fat required by your body.
The next step would be a detailed nutrition assessment where we assess your current diet intake using professional nutrition software and work out how many calories, carbohydrates, proteins and fats you are actually having per day. In addition, we also assess if there are any vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Lastly, we will guide you to an individualised meal plan specifically for you.
We are pleased to inform you that we have packages for further follow-ups to help you achieve your goal. We will guide you accordingly to which package suits you best from the assessment’s conclusion which is carried out in the first dietetic consultation.
