Hi! Today's Thirsty Thursday and I have a very topical question for all you guys out there working in social care who are supporting ladies and gents and trying to improve their fluid intake as mush as possible.
We all know what the potential effects of dehydration are for our elderly and vulnerable loved ones. We know that it can lead to:
- UTI's (urinary tract infections)
- AKI's (acute kidney injury)
- Pressure ulcers
- Unnecessary hospital admissions.
