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 diet and nutrition can reduce frailty.
By the end of this session you will:
- Understand the components of frailty and their negative impact on health
- Recognize the importance of good nutrition and diet for promoting healthy aging
- Identify the risk factors and impact of malnutrition on older adults
- Appreciate the benefits of healthy food choices.
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.
