How it works

Currently not suitable for people with swallowing difficulties

Jelly Drops are designed to supplement normal fluid intake - ideal for anyone who forgets to drink, doesn't feel thirst, or just has a sweet tooth!

The idea behind Jelly Drops came when Lewis Hornby’s own grandmother Pat was admitted to hospital due to dehydration. Pat, who had dementia, spent 24 hours on IV fluids in hospital before thankfully making a full recovery. Lewis was left wondering how something so small could have a potentially life-threatening impact.

Lewis then spent a month in his grandmother’s care home, consulting with doctors, dementia specialists and speech and language therapists before developing the sweet you can see today.

What people say
"The jelly drops are amazing and such a fantastic idea, I'm absolutely over the moon to say my Grandma who has Alzheimer's is loving eating the jelly drops and even ask for more when she has finished." AH, December 2020

“I am so happy that I am able to now get hold of Jelly Drops, which are for my Mum who has Alzheimer's disease. Fluid intake has been a big issue. This has been made all the worse by the limitations on family members visiting Mum's care home during the pandemic. Jelly Drops seem to have been a big hit and it is reassuring for us to know that Mum has another source of fluids, which she enjoys, rather than someone having to remind mum to drink a glass of water or juice.” SM, November 2020

Received my order for my Dad today. The fantastically fresh fruit smell was amazing. Dad loved them and safe to say he happily munched away without any prompting! Success x ED, March 2021

Bought these for my father-in-law who has dementia. He LOVES them!! Easy to handle, loves the taste and enjoys choosing which one he wants off the tray. We bought two trays to see if he liked them but will be ordering lots more. Such a great product. EB, March 2021
My father just loved them. When I asked him about them (he finds it very difficult to speak) he told me he would be ordering more! MC, April 2020

They are a massive hit with my Nan and she is now eating a box a day. Unfortunately I can’t comment on the flavour as she is refusing to share them with any of us. KB, April 2020

I wasn’t sure how Nan would take to Jelly Drops as she wasn’t very capable or able
of drinking independently. She also is fussy about textures and tastes. Nan started off with the staff offering her the drops. Now Nan has a tray in front of her and she picks them out of the tray herself and eats them independently. Jelly Drops have given my Nan new confidence. LE, Aug 2020
