Home and Alternate Site Care

The Home and Alternate Site Care Section provide a structure for communicating among all ASPEN members who have a shared interest in nutrition support in the home (traditional home, group home, intermediate care facility, or assisted living facility) and alternate site care facilities (skilled nursing facilities, long-term acute care hospitals, or rehabilitation hospitals); to act as a resource to other health care professionals to provide optimal nutrition support for patients in non-hospital settings; to form a collaboration of alternate site care practitioners in the design and implementation of basic and clinical research studies; and to participate with ASPEN's public policy task force to respond to legislation and regulatory documents addressing alternate site care issues.

Letter from the Chair

Mandy CorriganDear Home and Alternate Site Care Section Members,

Welcome to your new Home and Alternate Site Care Section’s webpage!
The purpose of the Home and Alternate Site Care Section is to provide a structure for communicating among all ASPEN members who have shared interest in nutrition support in the home (traditional home, group home, intermediate care facility, or assisted living facility) and alternate site care facilities (skilled nursing facilities, long-term acute care hospitals, or rehabilitation hospitals); to act as a resource to other health care professionals to provide optimal nutrition support for patients in non-hospital settings; to form a collaboration of alternate site care practitioners in the design and implementation of basic and clinical research studies; and to participate with ASPEN’s public policy task force to respond to legislation and regulatory documents addressing alternate site care issues.

We are encouraging our Section members to become more involved in several different ways including: volunteering to serve on our Section subcommittee; providing feedback and suggestions to improve our Section’s efforts; and becoming active on the ASPENConnect Section community. We would like to see our online ASPENConnect section be a forum for discussion between members and a networking tool among home and alternate site care providers.

We have an exciting year ahead and we look forward to serving Section member interests through the efforts of our volunteer members. If you have any questions or want to get involved please contact us!
