Our Host, Lori La Bey will be talking with Lewis Hornby is an award-winning 27-year-old inventor and designer, driven by a passion for social good. While studying Innovation Design Engineering at Imperial College London and the Royal College of Arts, he worked on a range of social impact projects, but his focus was diverted in 2018, when his grandma, who had dementia, was hospitalized with dehydration.

Lewis spent a month in her care home to try find a solution to her lack of water intake, which resulted in the invention of Jelly Drops. With the backing of the Alzheimer Society’s Innovation Accelerator Program, a range of prestigious awards and widespread global attention, he spent 18 months

researching and developing the product, before making Jelly Drops available to the public in the UK in 2020.

Lewis continues to spread awareness of the risks of dehydration in the elderly and those with dementia, having told his grandma’s story on a range of global platforms. Lewis holds Masters Degrees from University of Bristol, the Royal College of Arts and Imperial College London.

Lewis is the recipient of a wide range of awards, including the Dementia Care Innovation Award, the Snowdon Award for Disability and the Meaning-Centred Design Award. He currently leads the continued research and development of Jelly Drops as Chief Product Officer.
