The Frailty Care in the Community program is for people identified by their doctor or allied health professional with a low rating on the frail scale. The free program builds awareness about identifying frailty to reduce the risk of falls, decline of independence and the worsening of other health conditions. It will screen and assess physical performance, nutritional status, medication management, cognition, mental health and social support.
Participants will be able to access psychologists, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, dieticians and pharmacists with special interest in aged care. The program will involve a variety of individual appointments and group-based movement sessions personalised to the patient’s needs, and will improve the navigation to community health services. A fundamental part of the program will focus on social interaction and reducing isolation. Home visitations are also available for high-risk patients.
