Why is drinking a lot of liquids good for me in my later years?
As a person ages, the amount of water in the body decreases. Also, some older people drink less to avoid having to pass urine during the night or because they are afraid of leaking urine. All these things can cause dehydration. To prevent this, drink 8 glasses or cups of liquid every day. To avoid getting up at night to pass urine, try not to drink anything for 2 to 3 hours before going to sleep.
