Frailty is a medical condition of reduced function and health in older adults. Getting older doesn’t necessarily mean someone is frail, but it does increase the odds of developing multiple medical conditions and frailty.
Older adults and caregivers living in South East Ontario are invited to participate in this one-hour online education session to learn more about how activity can reduce frailty.
By the end of this session you will:
- Understand physical and cognitive components of frailty
- Recognize the impact of inactivity
- Identify strategies to increase your activity
- Appreciate the importance of sleep and rest
This series is hosted by the Centre for Studies in Aging and Health in partnership with the Canadian Frailty Network and the University Hospitals Kingston Foundation.
