  • 300ml water in each tray of 24 sweets.
  • Vegan and sugar free.

The idea behind Jelly Drops started in early 2018, when their founder Lewis Hornby’s Grandmother was hospitalised with severe dehydration. People living with dementia can often forget to drink, which can quickly lead to health problems if left unmanaged. That’s why Lewis developed Jelly Drops, to find a way to get more water into people living with dementia without constantly reminding them to drink.

Jelly Drops come in 6 tasty fruit flavours, Strawberry, Raspberry, Blackcurrant, Lemon, Lime, Orange, and use only natural flavours and non-artificial colours. Despite the amount of water in them, each sweet is firm throughout and very easy to chew. Simply present your loved one with a tray of Jelly Drops and they’ll most likely be tucking in in no time! Each tray of 24 drops is equal to about 300ml of water, providing excellent support for daily water intake. A loved one will surely delight in receiving such an attractive array of sweets, and you can feel confident they’re getting some hydration.

Please note: These sweets are recommended as a boost to daily water intake, not an alternative to it. They are not recommended for people with swallowing difficulties.

    My father has had some very good days since enjoying the Jelly Drops, and I think it might well be down to the replenishing of the salts.. he just loved them and has had no problems regarding swallowing. When I asked him about them (he finds it very difficult to speak) he told me he would be ordering more!

    Have proved beneficial to my mum, aged 80 with vascular dementia - we are constantly 'nagging' her to drink more but she is happy to eat jelly drops with little encouragement.

    Bought for my nan who has dementia and just come out of hospital due to a serious UTI. She loves them and is quite happy to help herself. Normally she doesn't feel like eating or drinking but she will happily help herself to them as she sees them as sweets.

    It can be so difficult trying to get fluids into my husband, who has dementia, but he loves these and helps so much with his fluid intake.
