Water can be gained from other sources (Posted late on 08/12 from 08/11)

Caregivers need to realize that they can get their clients to consume more water simply by knowing which foods contain a significant amount of water. Healthy foods such as many fruits and veggies have significant water content and can be really good for aging adults. Besides that, what your clients don’t know will only help them out in the long run!

By adding foods like grapefruit, honeydew, strawberries, raw tomatoes, watermelon, raw celery, cooked asparagus and raw or cooked broccoli, you are double-doing the health benefits for your clients. In addition, some of these foods are really helpful toward other health issues and may even be gender specific as to they help the most.

If you own an assisted living home, make certain that you incorporate the foods that contain significant water content to your clients’ diets. If you have employees, train them about the health benefits that your clients can gain by feeding them properly and getting them to drink a proper amount of fluids on a daily basis.

Spreading the word to anyone and everyone associated with your business is yet another method to show your clients and their loved ones that you believe that With Age Comes Respect.
