If you have a loved one suffering from dementia, you may know how prone they are to dehydration. Lewis Hornby, an engineering student, observed this challenge for his grandmother and her fellow nursing home residents and worked with doctors to develop a new product called Jelly Drops.
Jelly Drops are 90 percent water, but the colorful jelly-like texture tastes more like a sweet treat than life-saving hydration.
Jelly Drops are currently in development, and crowdfunding is underway. Lewis hopes to adapt Jelly Drops for people with illnesses like diabetes and dysphagia and wants to develop a vegan version.
