A 24-year-old student recently developed brightly colored edible water pods to help his grandmother with dementia who has great difficulty staying hydrated and had been rushed to hospital with severe dehydration. The Jelly Drops he created are 90 percent water, contain hydrating electrolytes, easy to grip and leave no residue on hands.
Jelly Drops are hydrating treats shaped like raindrops that come in a treat box with a see-through lid. They look like a box of candies, but they are not! The drops are meant to be appealing to people with dementia, as well as easy to grasp and swallow, and they contain water and electrolytes to help keep elderly patients hydrated.
