Nutrition Services at Home Base

Good nutrition can support and enhance our mental and physical health. Home Base’s Registered Dietitian and nutrition expert provides nutrition counseling to Veterans and their Families.

Home Base provides nutrition counseling for established patients seeking support for various topics, including weight-management, sports nutrition, heart health, diabetes, IBS/IBD, brain health, and the management of food allergies/intolerances. Patients receive a thorough nutrition assessment, set realistic lifestyle goals, and create individualized nutrition plans with a Registered Dietitian. Patients are also provided with support around various nutrition and lifestyle goals such as meal planning, healthful eating on a budget, and eating well when dining out.

Nutrition Services are uniquely integrated within various Home Base Veteran and Family programming. As part of the Home Base Intensive Clinical Program, patients participate in both individual and group nutrition counseling, as well as attend a hands-on cooking demonstration in order to gain experience cooking nutritious recipes while learning how foods can support their overall health. In the Home Base Outpatient Clinic, patients may opt to have a 60-min nutritional assessment and evaluation with the option of in-person or virtual (using video-conferencing) follow ups as needed. Participants in the Home Base Warrior Health and Fitness Program receive monthly individual and group nutrition counseling, specifically focused on healthful eating and fueling fitness goals.
