Institutionalized older adults (IOA) have an elevated risk for dehydration, falling, and poor blood pressure (BP) regulation due to aging, comorbidities, medications, and a person’s beverage habits. Poor fluid habits can negatively affect health, participation, and performance. This study examines the PEO fit of beverage habits of IOA to identify influencers (plus or minus) of morning balance and BP and subsequently possible falls. The research findings provide evidence for use in a hydration program.
