Good nutrition promotes healing and good health. Illness can cause a need to adapt food intake or limit certain types of foods. Diet counseling in the home provides an opportunity for patients and their families to meet on a one-on-one basis with a registered dietician who can answer questions and make recommendations. The dietician uses knowledge about proper nutrition to evaluate intake, calculate nutrient needs and develop individualized meal plans.
