“We know our program continues to meet a real need when we see familiar faces, coming back for a refresher and to add to their knowledge base”
Our attendees leave with a list of things they can’t wait to put in place at their facilities and organisations!
This is a fully catered two day event. The seminar fee includes arrival coffee, lunch as well as morning & afternoon tea.
We understand that it is a challenge for foodservice teams to cater for large groups of people.
In aged care, it is even more challenging. Changes in an older person’s taste, swallowing, appetite and memory means that catering is a completely different ball game.
The best aged care foodservice teams are specialised in their food knowledge and preparation skills. They know that they need unique systems to ensure their residents are provided with tasty and nourishing food.
For the past ten years, Leading Nutrition’s Food For The Ages has been a guiding force for many aged care foodservice teams across Australia.
This two-day seminar provides chefs, cooks, food service assistants and hospitality managers with up-to-date information and practical skills, ensuring they can provide the best food and nutrition for their aged care residents.
We cover topics you will not want to miss:
- Allergies and intolerances
- Aged care menu planning and honouring resident choice
- Texture modified foods and thickened fluids – focusing on the NEW IDDSI framework
- Nutrition in Dementia and enhancing taste
- Diabetes and lifestyle disease in aged care
- High protein and high energy diets
This is a fully catered two-day event. The seminar fee includes tea and coffee upon arrival, morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea.
Due to COVID-19 we are temporarily postponing the Food for the Ages events. We will provide more detail as it becomes available.
