Nestlé Health Science – Your partner in Aged Care Nutrition
Nestlé Health Science is the first of a new breed of health-science company. Advancing the role of nutrition to change the course of health management for consumers, patients, doctors, nurses and our partners in healthcare: this is our focus.
The role of nutrition is entering a new stage of discovery and innovation – not just in addressing nutritional gaps but with potentially direct therapeutic impacts – that is changing the management of health and forging an increasingly integral role in the management of health across the human life cycle.
Older people are at high risk of becoming malnourished, which is associated with both morbidity (health conditions) and mortality (death).1 The decline in function caused by malnutrition can impact severely on quality of life. At Nestlé Health Science, we take aging-related malnutrition seriously and are actively involved in finding and delivering nutritional therapies to improve quality of life.
