Hello again,
 
 
As the year Marches on (geddit), we mark Nutrition and Hydration Week by exploring the problem of dehydration in the elderly. We also swing by the Naidex disability show, and publish our first video equipment guide.

Oh, and we also don some silly socks for World Down Syndrome Day. It's not all work, work, work, y'know...
 
 
 
Did you know that care home residents are more than five times as likely to be admitted to hospital dehydrated than their peers in the community?

While there may be lots of reasons for this, including a higher prevalence of dementia in care homes, the bottom line is that keeping older people hydrated is a challenge for all caregivers.

Our recent blog explores why the elderly are more susceptible to dehydration and suggests how it can be tackled.
 
May the force not hurt you
 
Does part of your caregiver role involve turning people, or a person, in bed? Professor Dr. Hans Günter Lindner has conducted a study into four common care tasks. The study examines the forces required for the tasks when carried out manually versus mechanically.

The Raizer at Naidex
 
This month, we were pleased to loan the Raizer to moving and handling experts Melanie Sturman, Pam Sherliker and Lois Lees. Pam and Lois used the Raizer to demonstrate why the Raizer is an unbeatable tool in falls response.

Our local customers know that there isn't a single question our Showroom Team haven't got an answer for. So, to make the most of their knowledge, we're planning a series of videos that guide people through equipment solutions that can combat common problems. If you've got an idea for a topic, cast your meaningful vote here!

And finally...
 
 
We took the opportunity to be silly last Friday by donning fun socks for World Down Syndrome Day.

Harvey's monsters were our personal favourites. Raawrrr.
 
 
 
That's all from us for now. Take care and speak soon,
