As we age, we may be at an increased risk of dehydration. 

The University of East Anglia has undertaken extensive research in exploring how we can support older people, particularly those living in care homes, to drink well – the best way of preventing low-intake dehydration.

Working collaboratively with care home staff from eleven care homes in Norfolk and Suffolk, UK (with funding support from the Dunhill Medical Trust and UEA Impact Fund), the team have developed the ‘DrinKit’, a four-part guide to support hydration care in care homes.
