About the Long Term Care RD

The Long Term Care RD website was founded in 2021 by Michelle Saari, a Registered Dietitian with a passion for advocating and improving the lives of older adults.  

The site has evolved into a community space for groups, Registered Dietitians and Older Adults.  

Registered Dietitians working in Long Term Care frequently feel isolated and have very little training or resources available at their finger tips.  They typically work alone and struggle to find the answers they are looking for.  This is where the Long Term Care RD website was born.  It is a go-to resource for Dietitians that want resources developed by a practicing Dietitian FOR practicing Dietitians.

There is also a large community of older adults that are looking for scientific and evidence-based research information for all their nutrition needs.  Michelle Saari RD has over 8 years of experience aiming to improve the lives of older adults to age the best way by selecting the right nutrition.
