The Good Hydration! quiz

We have made a series of six short animated films about the importance of good hydration in keeping care home residents happy and healthy. The award-winning Good Hydration! structured drinks round initiative is helping reduce cases of urinary tract infection and ensuring that older people need fewer antibiotics and less time in hospital.

Watch the films below or view them on YouTube, then complete the quiz to test your knowledge.
