This is the first in a series of six short animated films about the importance of good hydration in keeping care home residents happy and healthy. The award-winning Good Hydration! structured drinks round initiative is helping reduce cases of urinary tract infection and ensuring that older people need fewer antibiotics and less time in hospital.
