At Benevolent Nutrition Services, we pride ourselves on being compassionate and approachable dietitian’s. Our vision is to help our clients and their families live independently with a high level of nutrition knowledge, skills and capabilities – regardless of ability or functional limitations. We have experience working with people with disability and are enthusiastic to provide care for these clients in private practice under the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS).
HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT
Experience with Disability
Benevolent Nutrition Services is a trusted service for people with disability seeking nutrition support under the NDIS. We have worked in a variety of settings, including private practice, residential centres and aged care facilities. Our experience with disability and complex needs include:
- Intellectual and/or cognitive disabilities
- Physical disabilities
- Neuro-degenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease
- Neuro-muscular conditions such as muscular dystrophy and myopathies
- Enteral nutrition or ‘PEG’ feeding
- Dysphagia (swallowing difficulties) and texture modified diets
- Cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, autism
- Disabilities involving dementia and mental illness
Benevolent Nutrition Services believes everyone is deserving of optimal health and is committed to the client’s choice and control. We value your time when making an appointment to discuss specific needs (nutrition, disability, communication), client goals and how we can help you achieve them and where you would like the services provided. Collectively, this ensures you are confident in choosing Benevolent Nutrition Services as your provider and provides us information on how we can deliver your individualised patient-centred service.
Experience with NDIS
We have experience with the requirements of NDIS and are skilled in communicating with planners, support coordinators and support workers. This includes documentation for the NDIS such as support plans and reports.
Connected with other NDIS Providers
Benevolent Nutrition Services have working relationships with a number of other NDIS providers on the Sunshine Coast including speech pathologists, occupational therapists, exercise physiologists and support coordinators. Our preference to work within a multi-disciplinary team provides collaborative support to achieve your goals.
Home Enteral Nutrition (HEN)
Our Accredited Practising Dietitians can register clients for Home Enteral Nutrition (HEN) as well as prescribe a range of oral nutrition supplements and enteral feeding formulas specific for individual needs.
Convenient Service Delivery
There’s no need to travel to receive expert nutrition and disability support. We know how important it is to be in a comfortable environment to get the most out of our time together. We provide mobile services that can come to you in whatever location you feel most comfortable.
