First Choice Home Health and Hospice provides a dietitian when needed to help suggest and plan nutritional programs for our patients.  Plans would include grocery shopping and food preparation to address which foods are obtained and how they are prepared.  Certain health conditions contribute to nutritional challenges in people and require more specific follow-up and attention.  Illnesses such as diabetes, kidney problems, or various heart conditions require specific nutritional regimens for the patient to manage their health problem.  Our dietitian is an important part of our home health team to help our patients be more independent in their homes despite their existing medical problems.
