Encouraging someone with dementia to drink

I have only just discovered this innovative drinking system that prompts someone to drink with personally recorded voice  messages. The video tells you all you need to know and use this link to purchase one from Amazon, be quick as they are in short supply with only 5 left when I last checked!

It has been incredibly well thought through and designed and is ideal for anyone living alone, in a care home or hospital patients.

In trials, it has been shown to increase fluid intake by up to 60%

Using the Droplet system may help to reduce the risk Urinary Tract Infections (UTI’s), falls and even sepsis.

A huge amount of thought has gone into the design and functionality of Droplet.
