Online Nutrition

Aged Care Nutrition Australia

Healthcare 2 You is leading the way with an Online Nutrition service. Providing dietetic support and expertise to residents, this service is as good as one would expect from a contracted nutrition service but with exceptional convenience, ease of access and heavily reduced costs.

It’s like having your own Dietitian at your facility 24/7

Whilst a face to face consultation is the traditional mode of practice, we understand it is not always achievable for those in remote locations or facilities with limited budgets.

No need to wait for monthly visits or scheduling for on-site appointments. Rather, by choosing Online Nutrition as a more useful option, you are able to access many benefits which include:

  • Immediate access to expert advice from an Accredited Practising Dietitian
  • Resident consultation reports returned to you within 24 hours of receiving referrals.
  • Managing the nutritional needs of your clients at convenient times suited to you
  • Significantly reduced costs to your facilities (approximately 50% less)

To get started with the referral process, simply click on REGISTER if you haven’t signed up previously or LOGIN if you already have an account with us.
