Aug 29, 2022


Regency Square Care Center is dedicated to promoting health and well-being among seniors and aging adults. As part of our comprehensive approach to geriatric and aging care, we recognize the importance of nutrition. We understand that having access to healthy food options, even in concessions and vending environments, plays a crucial role in maintaining overall health. In this article, we will explore how we prioritize providing nutritious choices for seniors at Regency Square Care Center.

The Significance of Nutrition in Senior Care

Proper nutrition plays a vital role in the health and well-being of seniors. As individuals age, their nutritional needs change, and maintaining a balanced diet becomes increasingly important. At Regency Square Care Center, we recognize that nutrition impacts overall health, cognitive function, and disease prevention. That's why we prioritize offering healthy options at concessions and vending machines throughout our facility.

Our Commitment to Health

In line with our commitment to promoting health and well-being, Regency Square Care Center has taken various measures to ensure that our concessions and vending machines offer nutritious choices. We believe that our residents and visitors should have access to options that support their overall health goals, regardless of where they are in our facility.

Collaboration with Nutrition Experts

To ensure the nutritional quality of our concession and vending options, we collaborate with expert nutritionists and dietitians. These professionals assess the nutritional value of the food items available and provide recommendations on healthier alternatives. Their expertise allows us to curate a selection of snacks and beverages that align with the dietary needs and preferences of seniors.

Menu Diversity

We understand that individuals have different dietary preferences and restrictions. Therefore, we strive to offer a diverse range of options to cater to various needs. Our concessions and vending machines include items suitable for vegetarians, individuals with food allergies, and those with specific dietary requirements. We believe that everyone should be able to find something nutritious and appealing.

Educational Resources

At Regency Square Care Center, we strongly believe in empowering individuals to make informed choices. To support this, we provide educational resources that highlight the importance of nutrition and guide individuals in making healthier decisions. These resources may include brochures, posters, or digital displays near the concessions and vending areas.

Examples of Healthy Options

Our commitment to offering healthy options means that you can find an array of nutritious choices within our concession and vending machines. Here are a few examples:

Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

We ensure that fresh fruits and vegetables are readily available through our vending machines. From crispy apples to refreshing carrot sticks, seniors can enjoy a variety of nutrient-rich options.

Whole Grain Snacks

Whole grains provide essential dietary fiber and offer longer-lasting energy. Our concessions feature whole grain snacks such as granola bars, whole wheat crackers, and baked chips.

Low-Sodium Options

We understand the importance of limiting sodium intake, especially for individuals with certain health conditions. In our vending machines, you can find a range of low-sodium snacks, such as unsalted nuts and low-sodium popcorn, without compromising on taste.

Hydration Choices

Staying hydrated is vital for overall health. Our vending machines are stocked with a variety of beverages, including water, herbal teas, and sugar-free options. These choices promote proper hydration while minimizing the consumption of sugary drinks.

Special Dietary Accommodations

We understand that some individuals have specific dietary accommodations due to allergies, intolerances, or health conditions. With this in mind, we offer a selection of snacks that are free from common allergens and meet specific dietary requirements, such as gluten-free or dairy-free options.


At Regency Square Care Center, we prioritize the health and well-being of seniors by offering healthy options at concessions and vending machines. Our commitment to nutrition ensures that residents and visitors can make informed choices while enjoying nutritious snacks and beverages. By collaborating with experts, providing menu diversity, and offering educational resources, we strive to empower individuals in their journey towards better health.
