Institutionalized older adults have an elevated risk for dehydration due to aging body systems, medication effects, urinary incontinence, impaired mobility and cognition, and the individual’s beverage habits. Being dehydrated has negative consequences on health, participation, and performance. This study examines the PEO fit of beverage habits for institutionalized older adults to identify associations (+ or -) with overall fluid intake, thereby providing evidence for a hydration program.
