Cheers to Better Hydration: Make hydration an all day, every day priority.

Help fight the effects of dehydration with our educational tool.

Dehydration is a serious condition, especially for senior citizens. At least one in five older adults in long-term care has dehydration due to not drinking enough fluids.1 Left unchecked, it can limit your ability to fight infections, lead to confusion, falls, seizures, or even death.2

The Thick-It® brand is here to help. Developing new and innovative dysphagia nutrition solutions has been our primary focus for over 30 years—and education is central to our mission. We’ve developed a downloadable infographic that visually explains the signs and consequences of dehydration, offering simple steps to help your patients stay better hydrated.
