so many things depend to your answer. for instance is this person fragile to begin with? age? does this person have a cardiac issue(too much fluid can cause issues)
if he or she is noramllly healthy I would say fluids just like you or I. and it might be a few days before dehydrations occurs, depends on waht you feel is causing it. massive dirreah, just not drinking TOO HOT in the nursing home.
It can take a long time for a person with Alzheimers to drink.
