Flavor is the name of the game – (Posted late on 08/12 from 08/10)

Many of us, young and old alike, all want a little kick of flavor when we drink. Water is great, but every now and then if you pair it with lemon or cucumber or some other soothing flavor, it makes it that much more palpable to drink.

While younger folks tend to be concerned about calorie content in sugary drinks, older people may have to simply watch out for the sugar due to other medical conditions, such as diabetes. Immobile adults may also have to watch their calorie intake, but many older people tend to begin losing weight so it is important to watch the calories that they are consuming; ensuring that they are proper. What I mean by that is that is you will want to make certain that your clients don’t fill up on needless calories and then refuse good food because they are too full from empty calories.

If an older adult needs to keep up their electrolytes, and if they do not like Gatorade or Power Aid, you may want to try the new flavorless electrolyte waters. This way your client is getting the electrolytes that they need and are doing so without even realizing that they are doing their bodies a huge favor!

Knowing about flavor and electrolytes and the like help you show your clients that you believe that With Age Comes Respect.
