You learn from a young age the importance of drinking enough water every day. Staying hydrated is essential for balancing bodily fluids, cleansing the body of toxins and maintaining bowel function, but for people with Alzheimer’s, water’s effects on the brain may be the most important. A young and healthy brain cannot function properly without enough water, and people with this dementia can suffer even more greatly as a lack of liquids can cause symptoms to worsen. Aegis Living understands how essential it is to avoid dehydration among seniors – each assisted living community takes action with this information by putting initiatives into effect to ensure that residents keep their brains well hydrated.

Whether you’re an infant or a senior, the foods that you eat have a massive effect on every part of the body.
