The idea behind Jelly Drops was born in early 2018, when the founder Lewis Hornby’s Grandma was hospitalised with severe dehydration. He learned that people living with dementia can often forget to drink, which can quickly lead to health problems if left unmanaged. Lewis was inspired to develop an inclusive water sweet and today Jelly Drops are designed for everyone to enjoy.
Jelly Drops come in 6 tasty tasty flavours, Strawberry, Raspberry, Blackcurrant, Lemon, Lime, Orange, and use only natural flavours and non-artificial colours. Despite the amount of water in them, each sweet is firm throughout and the smooth jelly texture is very easy to chew. Each tray of 24 drops is equal to about 300ml of water, providing excellent support for daily water intake. Most people have a handful drops a few times a day. Present your loved one with a tray of Jelly Drops and they’ll most likely be tucking in in no time!
Please note: These sweets are recommended as supplement to daily water intake, not to replace it. They are not recommended for people with swallowing difficulties or suspected swallowing difficulties.

My father has had some very good days since enjoying the Jelly Drops, and I think it might well be down to the replenishing of the salts.. he just loved them and has had no problems regarding swallowing. When I asked him about them (he finds it very difficult to speak) he told me he would be ordering more!
Have proved beneficial to my mum, aged 80 with vascular dementia – we are constantly ‘nagging’ her to drink more but she is happy to eat jelly drops with little encouragement.
Bought for my nan who has dementia and just come out of hospital due to a serious UTI. She loves them and is quite happy to help herself. Normally she doesn’t feel like eating or drinking but she will happily help herself to them as she sees them as sweets.
It can be so difficult trying to get fluids into my husband, who has dementia, but he loves these and helps so much with his fluid intake.
