The disease may affect one's oral intake ability, absorption and metabolism. Home-based nutrition care involves a dietician looking after the dietetic needs of those who are housebound, undergoing palliative care, unable to ingest food and using PEG feeding or require supplementation.
Home-based nutrition care and curated nutritional support may be used to support wellness and prevent or manage chronic diseases as well as manage long term support for with chronic diseases such as kidney disease, obesity and cardiovascular diseases, or learning disabilities, oncology, wound healing, housebound and the elderly. Through an individually-tailored diet plan, your dietician can ensure you receive appropriate nutrition to aid healing, maximise your enjoyment of food, minimise food-related discomforts and prevent and treat unnecessary malnutrition.
Both Beat dieticians, Lindie and Inge, are compassionate about home-based nutrition care including palliative nutrition.

From removing unnecessary diet restrictions, screening for malnutrition to treating preventable complications of weight loss and providing nutritional supplements when necessary, the Beats are well experienced in curated nutritional support.
