A research study by Allen and her colleagues found that nutritional supplements have a positive effect on both weight and cognitive function of older adults with dementia.

Aurrum’s Clinical and Food Service Dietitian Melissa Ruffa said Aurrum supports and is proactive in the use of nutritional supplements for those residents with dementia experiencing weight loss and loss of appetite.

“For residents with dementia, prescribed nutritional supplements can optimise nutrient intake, assist with weight gain and also improve mental capacity.”
