Better prevention from illness

Staying properly hydrated, particularly when recovering from illness, is a really simple way to decrease the chances of these conditions developing . The Hydrant provides a simple and accessible way to drink at any time and to monitor fluid intake easily.
Enhanced resident experience
In addition to recovering more quickly, the Hydrant provides dignity through independence, by allowing residents with limited mobility to drink without help.
Frees up time for carers
