Aged Care Specialist Dietitian, APD
Welcome to Nosh to Nourish!
I'm Louise, an Aged Care Dietitian combining my love of creating tasty, safe and nourishing food for older people, with being an advocate for high quality meal time experiences.
I had no intention of working in aged care when I graduated, there wasn't even any discussion of this being an area of opportunity for a dietetic career. Thankfully this has changed, but unfortunately the training that dietitians get in this field is still very limited (does one lecture at uni count?!).
It can be frustrating not knowing where to find the right information, or even what the right information is - you don't know what you don't know, right?
I've created this space for dietitians to learn all you need to know to be successful in this industry. I condense 17 years of learning, experimenting, evidence based nutrition and practical strategies into an online program with mentoring, to fast track your career in this rapidly growing industry.
More dietitians who are skilled in aged care nutrition and food services are desperately needed, to lead the change that we know needs to happen. Whether you're working for an aged care organisation, dietetic consultancy or own your own practice, together with this community of dietitians I'm here to support you during your learning and professional development.
