Eat Right, Live Strong!
Having a nutritious meal is vital for healthy living, and most especially so for people living with disabilities as they often experience eating disorders that adversely affect their body and general well-being. This makes dietetic support and meal planning for those with disability absolutely essential.
Here at AHP, our dieticians are registered providers under the NDIS, with accreditations in dietetics and nutrition. They leverage their knowledge and expertise to offer a variety of dietetics services for people living with disabilities such as autism, down syndrome, Parkinson’s disease, and including those with intricate disability nutrition needs.
Our services can be carefully tailored to meet the level of your budget and nutritional needs. As friendly dieticians, we work actively with every disabled person to clearly ascertain their precise nutritional and disability requirements so as to help facilitate better nutrition outcomes.
Our dietetic services are available to people of all ages with a range of disabilities and challenges including:
- Empowering disabled children and adults with the knowledge they need to better manage their health
- Nutrition education on planning and preparation of appetising and nutritious meals
- Practical resources and methods to assist with eating, feeding and cooking
- Nutrition education and guidance around treating a range of health conditions
- Creating enjoyable meals while working around allergies and intolerances
- Managing appetite and weight loss
- Guidance on fixing suitable meals including how to choose suitable foods from vendors
The AHP Difference
Walter de Ruyter
The management of mobility and amelioration of pain through massage and movement is an essential part of ensuring the wellbeing of our residents. Working in partnership with Australian Health Professionals has changed the way we use 4B funding for the better physical and mental health of residents, while reducing the risk of injury to staff. It is a pleasure to recommend Australian Health Professionals who work collaboratively with staff or ensure excellent care and revenue optimization.
The team at AHP are very professional and provide us with Physio, OT, Speech Path and Dietic services. We have been extremely impressed with the level of service, professionalism, contemporary practice and staff who are motivated and engaged in providing excellence in care for our residents. Feedback from residents and staff has been overwhelmingly positive and communication with management has been the highest standard.
Thank you AHP for making the transition between employers easy and stress free. This is the first time I have used a recruitment agency and I valued your advice and support throughout the process. Your professionalism and interest in my circumstances was appreciated. I have no hesitation in recommending you to colleagues looking for new positions.
We have partnered with Australian Health Professionals for a range of permanent and temporary recruitment assignments; particularly those which are hard to fill or critical to our organisation. We have found Anne and the team very responsive, flexible, customer centric and committed to sourcing in line with our brief. When we find it challenging to source, we do look to AHP to provide support with candidate acquisition.
I just wanted to say thank you to Sarah for all of your help in assisting me in finding a job here in Australia. It has been two weeks now since I started my job and everything is going good. Thank you for being exceptionally professional and accommodating and going above and beyond to make the process a smooth as possible. It’s jus great to meet a person like you, who is able to assist aspiring Nurses secure rewarding jobs. You work in a way that you are always there to listen to our needs and sometimes problems.
Our physiotherapy program was implemented by AHP in 2015. Our residents have been given the opportunity to improve their mobility and well-being and equally importantly to learn that physio and activities programs are fun. The improvement in the activity levels of our residents has been fantastic. Another positive aspect of employing AHP is their knowledge of the ACFI system and how physiotherapy services can contribute to an increase in the revenue of an aged care service. Marco Polo is a strong supporter of AHP - as evidenced by the fact that we now have 5 full time allied health staff working across our two facilities - a resource our residents welcome because they feel better because of it.
