Hydration is closely monitored in the senior population due to the physiological changes that occur as our body goes through the aging process. The body composition changes by retaining less water, increasing the fat tissue, and diminishing the sense of thirst. The disease process that affects the senior population impacts the hydration status as well as increasing the likelihood of increased hospital stays, visits to the emergency rooms, and other health complications. Being aware of the symptoms of dehydration in seniors is essential.

It is vital that a senior living community put just as much effort into resident retention as they did in getting seniors into their community.
