Clinical & Community Dietitians

Dietitians can play an important role in improving your health and wellbeing by promoting a healthy lifestyle through food and nutrition.

Dietitians provide specialised care to optimise your nutrition no matter what the reason for referral might be.

All dietitians at Royal Rehab are accredited which means you can be assured they meet rigorous requirements and keep abreast with evidenced based practices.

How can a dietician service help me?

Food and nutrition are integral parts of our life and enjoyment. Whilst recovering from an illness or an injury, good nutrition becomes paramount. 

Dietitians can appropriately tailor programs to your unique requirements.

Some of the services include:

  • Nutrition assessment and diagnosis 
  • Tailored intervention including education for you, your family and carers 
  • Oral or enteral nutrition support 
  • Group education sessions 
  • Menu planning and personalised meal plan development 
  • Healthy shopping and cooking strategies 
  • Liaison with the multidisciplinary team and your medical team including your GP in delivering nutrition care 
  • Service summaries for NDIS plan meetings 
  • Other individual specific interventions 

What is the best time to seek support from a dietician?

A good time to seek support is if you experience unintentional weight loss, have a chronic disease or need to improve your nutrition in general, our dietitians can help. 

It’s important to understand that your dietitian is also a member of your multi-disciplinary rehabilitation team. This means they work together with you and your treating team to enable you to achieve your rehabilitation goals.

Dietitians can support your rehabilitation journey better by ensuring the right fuel at the right time to equip you with the strength and stamina to realise the rehabilitation goals from mobility and self-management of chronic conditions. Community dietitian services via Royal Rehab gives you this added advantage of a holistic approach which also aids accelerating your rehab potential.
