At Regis we know good food is central to life and good nutrition underpins good health. We have on site cooks in every aged care facility and home-style meals and baked treats are prepared daily.

LIFE AT REGIS
Food is central to life at Regis.
All our facilities have a cook on-site. They prepare well-balanced, fresh and tasty home-style food for each meal and a variety of baked treats every day.
Variety is important and our menus are changed every four weeks. All meals are approved by qualified dieticians to maximise nutritional balance.
Dining at Regis is a social event. Our rooms are set up for social interaction and a place for families and friends to join loved ones for a meal.
In line with best dietary practices and resident preferences, the main meal of the day is lunch, with dinner being a slightly lighter option. You are also welcome to choose a salad or sandwich if that is your preference on any given day.
Special dietary requirements and needs such as smooth puree, gluten free, dairy free and vegetarian are also well taken care of with carefully designed specific menus.
Mosaic is an award winning, innovative visual identification system enhancing our ability to provide the right care for residents.
Unique to Regis, Mosaic allows our staff to understand, at a glance, the care requirements of individuals, while respecting the privacy of that individual. Each Mosaic is personalised to an individual and complements resident care plans.
Since launching, the Mosaic system has helped enhance the more social aspects of care, helping initiate conversations and encouraging conversations between residents.
At Regis, we believe it is vitally important to stay engaged with life, to stay involved with current interests and develop new ones. All Regis facilities are constantly looking for new ways to engage and support our residents. Our National Lifestyle Team takes ideas from around the country and makes them available to all residents.
There are daily activities, weekly programs and at least one major celebration each month.
Family and friends are invited and encouraged to participate as much as possible in lifestyle activities. These include art classes, barbeques, exercise and discussion groups, excursions, entertainment, guest speakers and special interest groups and more.
