"Drinking a large amount of water in one go will cause your stomach to expand, so you will not feel like eating or drinking."

'For example, after a hot shower, where you often sweat and therefore lose moisture. Or make sure that someone always drinks something after brushing their teeth or consuming an extra glass during a meal or when taking medication. '

4. Provide variety

'Make the consumption of moisture more attractive by alternating. For example: coffee, tea, water, fruit juice, yogurt, fruit and vegetables. '

5. Be alert to fever

"Make sure that someone drinks at least half a liter per degree of fever more than usual."

Make sure that you are alert to a change in drinking pattern and drinking quantity. Do you work in home care? Then you can also maintain a moisture list together with your client. In this way you chart whether the client drinks enough and the client becomes aware of his fluid intake. '

"Is someone confused or drowsy? Then take a critical look at how much moisture someone receives in a day. "

"Does anyone need a reminder to make sure he drinks enough?" Consider the use of a tool such as the Obli. This tool gives a signal when it is time to drink water from your water cooler Ripley. "
