The importance of staying hydrated – particularly for older people – cannot be underestimated. Dehydration can cause people to be more sleepy, unsteady on their feet and more likely to suffer from urinary tract infections but symptoms are often hard to recognise.
Each year, many older people end up requiring medical treatment or even hospital admission as a result of not drinking enough fluid throughout the day.
Virgin Care are running a '8 to hydrate' campagain which encourages you to drink 8 or more glasses of fluid per day.
