Are you struggling to keep hydrated?

Lots of older people, particularly those with dementia, struggle to drink enough, which is why Lewis Hornby was inspired to create water sweets for his grandma Pat.

The design graduate from the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London, came up with Jelly Drops, an innovative, sugar-free treat made from 95% water with added electrolytes and vitamins, no artificial colours, natural flavours and suitable for vegans. They are so soft that there is no choking danger.

Since launching in July 2020, the product has received 15 awards and the Alzheimer’s Society has partnered with Lewis and his team through its Accelerator Programme, which supports people to develop product and service innovations to help people living with dementia.
