A Simple Hydration Plan

With the heat of summer, it is especially important to keep a senior loved one in your care hydrated. I find it helps to have water close by in an easy to drink from container. If a elder in my care is not taking sips, I will "offer" a reminder and my help.











For those who resist, you may consider adding high water content fruits, vegetables and soup at mealtime, or even Jello, or a popsicle. If someone has an incontinence problem, they may not take a drink even when thirsty to avoid an accident. Scheduling regular trips to the bathroom can help avoid those accidents and increase liquid intake
