Stay Thirsty for the Future

Staying hydrated is important for everyone, regardless of their age. It’s one of the cornerstones of great health, but it’s not always something we think about as we go about our day. Let’s face it – we’re busy people, living busy lives. And unless we actually get to the point of having noticeable thirst, stopping to take a few sips of water isn’t a priority.

Unfortunately, the older we get, the greater an issue staying hydrated becomes. Our health becomes increasingly dependent on the little things, and one of those “little things” is becoming dehydrated. Dehydration can lead to issues that are harder to bounce back from as we age. At Watermark of Gulf Breeze Assisted Living & Memory Care, we make our residents’ care and their health a top priority, so each floor of our facility is equipped with three conveniently located hydration stations where water is available to prevent dehydration and even UTIs, both of which could potentially lead to hospitalization.

Sip On This

While it may not be standard to have water stations available to residents at most senior care facilities, at Watermark we’re dedicated to taking the extra steps to ensure that the individuals in our care are confortable, happy, and – most importantly – healthy. Water stations are just one more way that we can serve our residents, and so we believe that it’s not just an “extra”- it’s a necessity.

It’s important to always be aware of the need to hydrate throughout the day. Stopping to take even just a few sips of water here and there can truly add up, so we encourage everyone – our staff included – to take a pause and take a sip.

If you have to, make a game of it. See how many hydration stations you can stop at during the day and give yourself a target of how many sips to take at each one. Sips turn into ounces, and ounces translate into a system that’s hydrated and well balanced. Drinking even before you notice your thirst is a good way to prevent yourself from going

too long or getting too far, so keep in mind that noticeable thirst is actually one of the first signs of dehydration. Your health is paramount, so stay thirsty for good health - drink to quench your well-being.
