The commission aims increase its commitment to improve food and nutrition within the residential aged care system and has committed $12.9 million to go towards increasing the capability and accountability of providers.
There are new dietary guidelines and resources for providers to support older people, which can be found here: https://www.agedcarequality.gov.au/providers/quality-care-resources/food-dining-and-nutrition-resources-providers
