You will come away from the Nutritional Wellness program with a newfound knowledge of how food can help prevent the onset of some chronic diseases or reverse their severity. You will also learn about the different and sometimes unknown, ingredients in foods, and how even small changes in your diet can have significant health outcomes.
Everyone’s nutritional needs are different, so the Nutritional Wellness program is customised to help you achieve your specific wellness goals.
- Understanding the relationship between nutrition and managing your health.
- Ensuring you are getting enough energy from your diet.
- Understanding how different ingredients and food groups can affect your health.
About the program
The Nutritional Wellness Program is designed to educate people on nutritional health and food safety and provides people with the resources and confidence to prepare nutritious meals. The Program will explain the relationship between the foods you eat and how you can use different foods to treat and prevent health conditions.
As a result of COVID-19, our Wellness programs have been moved to a virtual setting meaning you can access it from wherever you live. Delivered once a week via a Zoom video call, you’ll be able to speak openly about your heart health concerns and even socialise with new friends, all from the comfort and safety of your own home. One of our Wellness Facilitators can even help you get set up if you’ve never used video calling before and all you need is internet connection and an iPad or computer.
Together with our qualified nutritionists and dietitians, you will develop a ‘My Nutrition Plan’ to follow throughout the Program and refer back to after you have completed it. This plan will help you stay on the track to healthy nutrition and enables you to monitor and celebrate your achievements along the way.
The group sessions provide a fun and supportive environment for you to share your nutrition challenges and learn how to combat them. You will also enjoy sharing recipes and healthy eating tips while making new friends.

How can I assist my family member to stay at home longer?
When it comes to broaching the subject of home care services with a loved one, it’s important to remind them that asking for help does not mean they will lose their independence. Seeking assistance enables people to stay safe and well in their home for longer.
