Medical / Assisted Care
With the rapidly increasing number of elderly members in our populations, preventative medicine - specifically hydration - will have a major effect on our loved one's well-being and healthcare costs. The AARP listed dehydration as a leading or underlying cause for hospitalization in those 65 and older. Stroke and heart attack risks increase with dehydration, and cognitive function is first to suffer when any person is dehydrated. For less-mobile and recovering elderly patients, the gentle, efficient flow of water or liquid nutrition from an OGWA system provides a spill-free, high volume, measurable solution to day-to-day living hurdles that can otherwise cause dehydration.
