Suggest treatment for frequent dehydration in an elderly person
Please see details for measures that you can take
Thank You for contacting HealthcareMagic. I'm Dr. Muhammad Ali Rauf and I will look into your concerns.
I have gone through your query in detailed and would try to help you in the best possible way. I understand that you concern is to avoid dehydration of your mother. Their could be a number of measures that you can consider in dealing with this condition:
1. Motivate her to take even sips.
2. You can make her different drink products like fresh fruit juices, milk shakes, etc. Sometimes one does not drinks water but prefers to take other fluids.
3. Make your habit to ask her after frequent intervals regarding fluids. You can take fluids yourself to her and ask her to drink as much as she wants. Do not force her because in that case she will hesitate.
4. Try to take her her out for walk in the evening. It will keep her fresh & elevate her mood.
5. Avoid caffeine and alcohol related products because they have a diuretic effect leading to a loss of body water and causing dehydration.
6. Certain foods have a high water content; like soup, yogurt, fruits and vegetables. These foods can help seniors meet the daily water requirement as well.
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.
Wishing you both a good health !!
