Jelly Drops: Fighting Dehydration!

Posted on 9th Jul 2020

Whilst hospital food and malnutrition is often in the news, dehydration is also a serious concern among the elderly. Preventable dehydration is an indicator of poor care and is all too familiar to many individuals in their elder ages. Older people are vulnerable due to psychological changes in the ageing process, which can also be affected by diseases an individual can suffer. There are many factors that contribute to the difficulty surrounding dehydration, and whilst keeping ourselves hydrated is such a key necessity and a core function that our bodies value, we can often forget how important it is. Age-related changes include reduced sensation in thirst, and this may be more pronounced in those who suffer from Alzheimer's disease, or those who have suffered a stroke. 
An extremely innovative product has been brought to the market and has already proven to help many people fight dehydration in a fun and creative way. 'Jelly Drops' are made of 95% water, are sugar free and created with 6 different natural flavours. They adopt bright colours that help attract attention, are easy to pick up due to a unique design, are easily kept fresh, have no negative health effects but most importantly, they keep people hydrated! Each tray contains 24 drops and 300ml of water (per tray) and are particularly easy to chew. 
Resisting the temptation of a colourful sweetie is definitely a hard task. I certainly know many people who'd fail at that! But what better way of having a naughty snack when you can make that treat into a healthy prospect? Dehydration has been masked with negative connotations for decades and at last, the care industry, as well as the sweet industry, has finally found something that provides a genuine benefit to health.
Keeping ourselves hydrated is extremely important, and we're now able to do that through an easy-to-use, tasteful and tempting snack! In fact, we can eat as many as we like. There's no limit on Jelly Drops! They provide such a benefit that we can eat away. We'd only be making ourselves more hydrated! The Care Company are extremely excited to be getting involved with the release of this fantastic new product, and cannot wait to try one ourselves!
