Elderly dehydration can result in:

- Bed sores in bedridden patients

What Are Your Rights When A Loved One Suffers From Elderly Dehydration
To help in preventing dehydration in the elderly, proper management of diet and medication is needed and a caregiver, physician or nurse is responsible for monitoring hydration while under their care. If an elderly person is showing some common physical signs, they may be suffering from dehydration and it is important to hold the responsible party liable.
Dehydration Symptoms in Elderly include;
- Low blood pressure
- Sunken Eyes
- Darker urine
- Thirsty mouth
- Short breath and weakness
