How to stay healthier and hydrated during a significant health challenge

Is your loved one weak, recovering from surgery / illness or has chronic disease or find it hard to eat?

The RoseCup drinking mug with it's unique innovative attachments are a great way to help to significantly increase the intake of thickened fluids and/or liquids. Not only do we focus on the way people feed or drink, but we also care about the nutritional state of individuals. Our delicious NutriTaste range is a healthy alternative and a perfect companion to the RoseCup and will assist you to achieve that.

It is important to remember that while you are increasing the intake of fluids that you also increase their energy levels. By adding well balanced nutritional fluids/foods to someones diet will this also boost the recovery process.

We developed NutriTaste for this specific reason – to boost the recovery process

  • NutriTaste is rich in energy that improve alertness, physical activity and social interaction. In cases of weight loss it will help to regain weight.
  • It's high protein content will assist with tissue recovery, healing as well as muscle and organ regeneration.
  • NutriTaste is a complete balanced supplement of vitamins & minerals that helps with tissue recovery

How will I know if someone is Dehydrated and Malnutrition?

It is VERY common scenario, but difficult diagnose, even for the professionals.

But if you are not sure, be on the outlook for the following possible signs:
Weight loss
Decreased speech
Sleepiness
Loss of energy

Less social interaction
Loss of appetite and poor health (pressure sores and prone to infections)

What to do …

Target a fluid intake of more than 1.5 litres per day – or as much as possible.
Check the urine – it should be light in colour and passed 4-6 hourly.
Optimise nutritional intake. We suggest 1-3 sachets NutriTaste per day.
Monitor regularly their weight, emotional status, speech and physical activity. All should improve.
As the energy levels and general condition improves, introduce simple regular exercises to improve muscle strength and the range of movement in joints.


Ensure regular professional reviews.

Let's Get Old With Quality And Dignity

by Dr. Gawie Roux (Lifemere Managing Director)

“Doc you know, dad was one of the top bank managers in the state and just look at him now! And mum was always at his side, cheerful and energetic. And look at the two of them - just a shade of what they have been. You know Doc, I tell you now, I don’t want to get old like this one day. I reckon this new thing of euthanasia is the answer …”
