An entrepreneur has come up with a novel way to get seniors struggling with dementia to drink more water: He’s smuggled it into gummy candies. Called Jelly Drops the candies are 90% water and come in six enticingly bright colors.

The gummies’ inventor Lewis Hornby was motivated to design the hydrating drops when his grandmother Pat, who suffers from Alzheimers, was taken to the hospital due to dehydration.

As those who have cared for seniors who face memory challenges like Alzheimers or dementia know, they often forget to eat or drink enough but one thing that often remains intact is their sweet tooth.

People simply love to snack which is why Hornby’s method of encouraging hydration through his candies is honestly ingenious.

According Yahoo Hornby’s grandma Pat loved the gummies, eating 7 of the water-filled candies in 10 minutes.

Furthermore, while the gummies are not yet available for purchase, according to their Instagram account Jelly Drops have been tried out in assisted living homes recently with other seniors with “fantastic results.”

All in all this seems like an innovative, fun, and, dare we say, sweet way to help tackle a very serious problem.
