Our goal is to help those who work with older adults to provide excellent care by staying up-to-date with the latest nutrition research and practices
Akron, OH (PRWEB) February 28, 2012
Becky Dorner & Associates, Inc., nationally known specialists in nutrition care for older adults, announces the launch of their new website, http://www.BeckyDorner.com. The new site provides healthcare practitioners, food service managers and others with innovative resources that translate technical research and regulations into easy-to-implement ideas and systems for daily practice.
The impact of chronic diseases has always put the frailest older adults at greater risk for unintended weight loss and malnutrition. Now, because the incidence of obesity among older adults is increasing, those who specialize in serving this population are also seeing an increasing number of patients with coronary heart disease, type II diabetes, stroke and other obesity-related diseases and conditions that limit functional independence. Proper nutrition care can be vital for helping all of these patients maximize their quality of life.
“Nutrition and diet play a key role in healthful aging, disease prevention and treatment,” explains Becky Dorner, RD, LD, and President of the company. “Our goal is to help those who work with older adults to provide excellent care by staying up-to-date with the latest nutrition research and practices.”
The many resources on nutrition care for older adults that are available through the http://www.BeckyDorner.com website include:
- Free News, Articles, FAQs, and Helpful Links
- Diet Manuals, Policy Manuals, clinical care and food service management books
- Menus and Recipes for health care settings
- Downloadable In-services and Kits
- Continuing Education Programs
- And More
“We are excited to be able to share information, tools and other helpful resources with thousands of professionals across the country and around the world,” adds Dorner. “We hope that this new website has a positive influence on quality of care for older adults.”
