THE HYDRATION GAME
Particularly useful for those working with older patients and residents, The Hydration Game delivers key knowledge and creative solutions which staff can implement to improve hydration.
As understanding of dehydration improves, it is becoming clear that many currently accepted simple indicators of dehydration in older people are unreliable. The game challenges ‘received wisdom’ and offers more effective ways of improving hydration, by encouraging increased fluid intake.
Increasing fluid intake means much more than drinking water or cups of tea – there are interesting, creative approaches to support people to improve their hydration. The Hydration Game allows clinical & support staff in care settings to understand the problem, before focussing on the changes they could make to improve hydration.
