Dining at Our Jackson Senior Community
Take a bite out of the good life
At Regency Retirement Village of Jackson, our dining experience is about so much more than just eating. It is about socializing, camaraderie, and family.
Using made-from-scratch recipes and fresh ingredients, our residents can enjoy three delicious and well-balanced meals in our dining room, prepared daily by our culinary team. Residents are able to select from a variety of meal options for each meal time. Meals can also be served in-room during periods of sickness.
In addition to making mealtime enjoyable for our residents, we also understand at our senior community the importance of good nutrition for seniors. Healthy eating is important at every age, but it’s especially critical for older adults. Food gives our bodies energy but can also help control weight– and eating well may also help prevent certain diseases such as osteoporosis, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and even some cancers.
All this said, we know there are factors that can sometimes make it difficult for seniors to maintain a healthy diet. Some of these factors include:
- Living alone or having trouble getting around well to shop and prepare healthy meals
- Other health issues that can make prepping and cooking food difficult
- Certain medications and conditions that can change appetite, or even change how food tastes
- Issues with self-feeding, chewing, or swallowing food
At Regency Retirement Village of Jackson, we help to mitigate all of those factors to ensure your loved one enjoys thoughtful dining with well-balanced meals, and assistance if needed.
According to the National Resource Center on Nutrition & Aging, as of 2017, food insecurity, or having limited access to adequate nutritious food to live healthily, affects 5.5 million seniors 60 or older in the U.S. At our senior community, we focus on helping our residents maintain healthy diets by giving them access to the best meals three times a day, all week long. We also have capable and compassionate staff to provide assistance to residents who need a little extra help at meal times. Our staff at Regency Jackson encourages our residents to:
- Choose foods high in nutrients to maintain healthy bodies
- Avoid empty calories
- Choose foods that are low in cholesterol and fat
- Drink plenty of water
- Stay physically active
Meals at Regency are a favorite time for our residents, and we know how important that is to their overall health and wellbeing. Our senior community keeps a focus on healthy eating.
