Custom Micro Markets: A Tool for Improving Senior Independence in Assisted Living

At Red Hawk Vending, we're not just another vending service provider. Our mission extends beyond the basics, especially when it comes to supporting the unique needs of our community's seniors. That's why we've tailored our micro markets to enhance the living experience in assisted living facilities, focusing on independence and well-being.


The Unique Needs of Seniors in Assisted Living: Seniors in assisted living often face difficulties in accessing convenient, nutritious food options. Mobility challenges, dietary restrictions, and the need for user-friendly interfaces are just a few hurdles. Red Hawk Vending recognizes these challenges and offers innovative solutions through our micro markets.

Designing Senior-Friendly Micro Markets: Our micro markets are thoughtfully designed with seniors in mind. Features include lower shelves for easy reach, simple, intuitive interfaces for effortless operation, and wheelchair-friendly layouts. We prioritize a range of healthy, nutritious options to cater to varied dietary needs and preferences, ensuring every senior finds something suitable.

Impact on Independence and Well-Being: Empowering seniors with the ability to choose their meals and snacks has a profound impact on their sense of independence and overall quality of life. These micro markets also benefit the wider community, including staff and family members, by providing accessible, healthy food choices as well as sweet and savory indulgences.
