WCHC offers individualized nutrition education (ex: diabetes, heart healthy, low fiber, high fiber, weight gain, weight loss, etc.) as well as nutritional guidance and consultation to patients and/or their families. Our dietitian performs nutrition assessments and follow-ups on patients as well as instruction on specific nutrient needs.

McCreedy Home

In the McCreedy Home, our long-term care facility, our dietitian will assess the nutritional needs and prepares a nutritional plan of care for each resident. Our dietitian also participates in weekly care conferences regarding guidance and consultation to the residents and their families. Both residents and families are encouraged to ask any question they may have regarding their diet. Monthly weights of each resident are monitored to recommend appropriate interventions as needed. Lastly, our dietitian will recommend nutrition supplementation as conditions indicate.
