Someone suggested jelly to me recently and it seems to have helped my PWD.We have had several days over 40 degrees and what with the smoke from the bush fires - yes we are in Australia- but my OH refuses to drink. He asks for coffee but won't drink it, he refuses water cordial or juice and can't even be bothered with beer which used to be a favourite. I am very concerned about dehydration and urinary infections but he is stubborn and will often refuse to cooperate with anything I suggest. What to othere people do in similar circumstance? I have tried ice blocks etc and hydrolite but he just sits there holding the cup and then puts it down when I move away.
