How Much Water Should a Senior Drink Each Day?

seniors drink lots of water

Everyone is encouraged to drink at least eight 8 ounce glass a day-regardless of age or activity. Now depending on your health, your physician might recommend you
to increase your fluid intake and that might be tough to accomplish through just drinking water, so here are some other choice for hydration you can try:

  • 100% fruit or vegetable juices
  • Fruits
  • Tea
  • Decaf coffee
  • Natural flavored waters

Bottom line is, drink enough water/fluids to keep from dehydration. Sometimes certain medications that you’re on might require you to increase your fluid intake,
check with your doctor or pharmacist. Now obviously if  you’re exercising you need to drink more to replace what your body gets rid of.
