Student Creates Edible Water 'Jelly Drops' That Help Dementia Patients Remain Hydrated

Lewis Hornby, a London-based student, is a grandson on a mission. When he noticed his dementia-afflicted grandmom was having trouble remaining hydrated, he came up with Jelly Drops; they are bite-sized pods of safe water which look like tasty treats.


These colorful “candies” are made up of mostly water, with electrolytes and gelling agents making up 10 percent of their composition. Presented in packaging reminiscent of a chocolate box and available in a rainbow of colors, Jelly Drops are an engaging and straightforward way to avoid dehydration, which is a common problem for people suffering from degenerative neurological diseases.


According to Hornby, it's easy for people with dementia to become dehydrated. For this reason, he decided to set out to and find a solution. He sought advice from psychologists and doctors and opted to “experience” life with dementia himself by using virtual reality tools as well as a week in a care home.


When he was familiar with the needs of dementia patients, Hornby brainstormed what they want. He observed that they find eating easier than drinking. Yet it can be hard to engage and encourage them to eat. So Hornby found the way to overcome this is by offering those people a treat.


Case in point? Hornby's own grandmom's reaction ate seven Jelly Drops in ten minutes, which is the equivalent to a cup full of water. That would typically take hours and require much more assistance.


Although Jelly Drops are still in a trial phase, they have already earned the student two honors: the Dyson School of Design Engineering DESIRE Award for Social Impact and the Helen Hamlyn Design Award – Snowdon Award for Disability.


Clearly, Jelly Drops' future is looking bright!
