People who are no longer able to eat and drink sufficiently on their own due to an illness are dependent on specialized nutrition: medical enteral nutrition with sip or tube feeds. Today, it is an integral part of many therapies and ensures that patients are supplied with sufficient energy and nutrients.
However, the switch to tube feeding in particular can raise many questions or uncertainties - for patients and relatives as well as for caregivers. In this situation, the Nutricia nutrition team helps and has done so for over 30 years.
The registered health and nursing professionals are fully specialized in medical nutrition recommendations. They support all parties involved in the preparation of individual nutrition recommendations, facilitate discharge management (transition management) in hospitals and thus ensure a smooth transition to the outpatient setting. With this service, the Nutricia nutrition team helps patients and relatives find their way around the new situation more easily and feel in good hands at all times. For more quality of life, safety and freedom - and for an optimal course of therapy.
Nutricia Homecare Services in Austria and Switzerland
In Austria, we also support our patients, family caregivers and professionals in the field of medical nutrition. If a patient is about to be discharged with enteral nutrition, the Nutricia Homecare Service organizes needs-based training for the patient, at home or in the clinic in consultation with the discharging agency.
Specially trained and certified staff guarantee qualified care and ensure continuity of care, during the transition between clinic, home or care facility. In emergencies, there is a 24-hour on-call service and, if necessary, a personal visit or follow-up training via the Nutricia Homecare service ensures safe care.
In Switzerland, we work with renowned local homecare providers offering support to our patients at home.
Nutricia Nutrition Team Junior
Many children are also unable to eat and drink sufficiently due to a severe illness or disability. Targeted enteral nutrition therapy helps these children and their parents achieve more security, balance and a new quality of life.
This is because children have different requirements for needs-based care and nutrition than adults. The Nutricia Nutrition Team Junior has therefore developed an overall concept "Nutrition in Pediatrics" that is completely tailored to these needs. It combines a comprehensive range of sip and tube feeds with state-of-the-art application technology and the service of the nutrition team. In cooperation with physicians, nurses and parents, the team ensures competent all-round care - from discharge from the hospital to further care in nursing facilities or at home.
The service is certified according to DIN EN ISO and all members of the nutrition team work to the same high standards. Further information on this service can be found at www.nutricia.de.
