Hydrate for Health

Many people suffer major health problems as a direct cause of dehydration – including regular urinary tract infections, constipation, dizziness, pressure ulcers, falls, confusion & lack of energy.

The Hydrant is already making a very real difference to many people with MS throughout the country and it has been suggested that it may help as many as 50% of those with the condition at any one time.

Leaflets are displayed at the Centre for you to look at.


Do you care for someone with Multiple Sclerosis
