Dietitians

Hospice Dietitians assist the patient in achieving the best nutritional intake possible given the current state of his or her health. Dietitians have much experience in dealing with the obstacles to eating that often challenge the terminally ill. In conjunction with the physician, the dietitian may make suggestions about food types that are more appetizing to the patient or ways of preparing or serving the food that make it possible for the patient to eat.
