Keeping your residents well hydrated is vital to maintaining good health and well being. Many seniors forget to drink fluids and are unable to recognize that they are thirsty. Providing visible “hydration stations” in resident common areas reminds them to drink fluids throughout the day. A hydration program in eldercare doesn’t have to be expensive. Fresh fruit and herb infused water not only satisfies thirst, but also provides vitamins and minerals to promote healthier residents. The color splash of the fresh fruit attracts residents to the “hydration station” and the taste keeps them coming back for more.
As with all our eldercare dining services programs, our team of Registered Dietitians and Certified Dietary Managers work together to identify residents with increased hydration risk. Residents are assessed for fluid needs and risk factors that may compromise their ability to stay well hydrated. Our team not only takes special care to provide adequate fluids at meal time, but we also ensure fluids are available in between meals.
