About Emma

Emma is a young and vibrant dietitian ​with a true passion for a holistic approach to nutrition in older adults and the elderly. Emma comes with many years of experience in working with older adults and aged care through both her professional and person life. Emma's work has a strong focus on a person centered approach to ​care, quality of life and promoting independence for as long as possible.

Emma has a long history volunteering and working with older adults in the community and the aged care setting. Over the years Emma has met some wonderful people and it has been these people who have inspired and helped her to realise her life's work is to be helping and working with the aging population.

Emma opened her own business as a means of connecting older adults living in the community and their families with accurate and trustworthy nutritional information and dietetic support. Her services are designed to help bridge the gap for access to dietetic services for older adults who find accessing or attending community services difficult. Emma will come to you in the comfort of your own home and provide practical support and advice, specific to your own unique needs and will tailor it to your home environment - because she will be right there with you.

Emma specialises in nutrition for dementia and can provide in home assessments for people living with, or caring for someone who has dementia. Emma has again embarked on further studies in this field and is currently studying a Bachelor of Dementia Care.
