Why choose a dietitian home visit?

Clients have many reasons for choosing a dietitian to come to them for an in-home visit, rather than travelling to a clinic. Home visit dietitians will be able to provide the same services as one would receive by travelling to an external clinic.

Home visits from dietitians cut down on waiting and travelling times for clients, so a home visit is usually more convenient for a client that is time poor. It also provides an opportunity for the therapist to better understand the home environment of the client which, in turn, helps the overall therapy process.

Other patients who may choose to have a dietitian visit their home include those who are advanced in age, or have mobility issues. Increasingly these patients are maintaining their independence by being able to stay in their homes longer by utilising mobile dietitian home care.

What ever the reason may be, Home Visit Network will make the process of finding a local independent dietitian that will come to your home quick and easy for a home visit.

What does a home visit from a dietitian entail?

A dietitian is a practitioner who can help treat a wide range of conditions including diabetes, heart disease, cancers, gastrointestinal diseases, food allergies, food intolerance’s, disordered eating as well as overweight and obesity.

Dietitians understand that there is no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to diet and nutrition (in other words, what works for one person may be different to what works for another). And the truth is that there are many ways for people to have a healthy diet. And it’s at this individual level that an APD can help. They consider the whole person – that is, each person’s unique profile, such as their medical history, as well as their needs, goals and lifestyle. They also assess the body of scientific evidence, and are flexible with the advice and support they offer, on a case-by-case basis.

Being able to tailor nutrition advice to find the best approach for each person is the cornerstone of ‘Medical Nutrition Therapy’ – it’s what APDs are qualified to do.

What Dietetic treatments are usually covered?

A dietitian may assess your personal nutritional needs to begin with and will develop personalised eating plans that take into account medical conditions and personal circumstances. A home visiting dietitian will also offer nutritional counselling and support to individuals and groups as well as offering information on healthy eating, shopping for food, eating out and preparing food at home.

If asked a dietitian can also undertake nutrition and food research, train health care professionals, develop nutrition communications, programs and policies and provide consultancy services to corporate organisations, food manufacturers, schools and health care facilities.

It is important that you confirm with your dietitian which treatments they provide.
