How Senior Citizens Can Stay Hydrated

drinking water

Hydration is super important for all of us, but it’s especially important for our senior citizens – particularly in the summer. But even if it’s in the middle of winter, drinking enough water is still important for the elderly. Sure, older adults probably have health and nutrition needs that seem more pressing. But honestly, not drinking enough water can easily complicate any other condition you may have, and make you feel even worse. Plus, it’s more important that senior citizens stay mindful of proper hydration because they experience less thirst than younger adults – even though their body doesn’t need less water. So, they end up drinking less water and depriving their bodies of what they need. Here’s how older […]

Drinking water is essential for everyday life. No one wants to drink water that is contaminated. And yet, avoiding water contamination can be difficult.

Tailgating in the fall during football season is a time-honored tradition – a ritual, even. It’s as important in the South as anything else.
