Supporting patients and residents to be well hydrated is the responsibility of all care staff members. The Hydration Game helps frontline staff to develop their understanding of the impact and consequences of hydration, and recognise when people in their care might be at risk of becoming dehydrated. It also helps them to focus on practical changes they could make in their workplace, implementing creative solutions to improve people’s fluid intake.
The game contains 3 packs of cards; General questions, Discussion questions, and a Staff Questions pack, which allows players to play a separate game where they’ll learn how to improve their own hydration at work.
The Hydration Game is a team game which allows conversations to develop around improving hydration for patients and residents. These discussions allow players to share knowledge, learn from each other and improve the way they work.
