Faster diagnosis of frailty in seniors aging at home is key to helping them stay independent

”In the next 10 years, the number of Canadians living with frailty will grow to more than two million.”

I’ve already written a lot about how frailty can negatively affect the quality of senior living and put pressure both on the elderly and the caregivers supporting them. You can scroll down to my previous posts to read more on that.

In the meantime, I want to talk about the importance of monitoring frailty among seniors who choose to age in place.

In the article below, you can read some important insights into the topic. Still, I’d like to highlight one thing in particular: seniors with moderate frailty require the most support both with their physical state and personal well-being.

Consistent support, health monitoring and incident response are crucial for enabling quality ageing in place for the elderly.
