Registered Dietitian

At Southwest VA Home Health Care, Inc., our Registered Dietitian will provide patients with nutritional teaching in the home setting and will develop special diets for patients such as:

  • Cardiac Prudent
  • ADA
  • Reduced Sodium
  • Renal Diets
  • Potassium Diets
  • Mechanical Soft
  • High Fiber
  • Mediterranean

Our staff will assist physicians in developing diets that provide enough nutrition to promote proper wound healing. Adequate amounts of protein, zinc and vitamins A, C and E are an important part of the daily diet.

Our Registered Dietitian will assess the patients current level of nutrition, work with them to develop a satisfactory diet program and educate them on why it is important to make specific dietary choices.  We encourage patients to implement new diets into their lifestyle.
