Stay Hydrated As a Senior

Published on

Decreased fluid intake and even a diminished sense of thirst are commonly exhibited by older adults due to physi- ological changes which accompany aging. When you’re out and about taking part in summer activities, however, it is critical to stay hydrated and replace fluids you lose through sweating.

Seniors should try and carry a reusable water bottle around with them when possible, or set reminders on your smart- phone or clock, even when you’re at home so you are alerted to stay on top of your hydration.

Eating water-rich fruits and veggies like cucumbers, spin- ach, and watermelon can also help you get enough fluids throughout the day.
