A HOMECARE company has tapped into a way to keep its team hydrated.

Stroud-based DoCare has invested in hundreds of branded water bottles for its support team, and also for its more vulnerable clients.

With the weather being so warm, having the bottles means busy staff can remain hydrated while they are on the go.

"Remaining hydrated is important for everybody, so for our staff the water bottles will be particularly useful when they are out on visits,” said DoCare manager Sue Mothershaw.

"Elderly people are especially vulnerable to dehydration, because with age the amount of body water decreases, and at the same time older people have a diminished thirst sensation, so we are giving the bottles to our more vulnerable clients who might find fetching a drink difficult, and also to any others who would like one."

DoCare support staff are actively taking steps during their visits to help ensure clients do not fall victim to dehydration.

This year, the company, which provides support across Cirencester, Stroud, Gloucester and other areas, is celebrating ten years in business.
