Frailty and Long-Term Care

Pre-conference Master Classes Available

 

Frailty is a state of increased vulnerability that results from reduced reserve and loss of function across multiple systems. Over one million older Canadians are living with frailty. To adequately care for the ageing population, frailty needs to be part of the conversations among long-term care residents, health care providers, caregivers, scientists, and policymakers.

 

Throughout the interactive session, participants will gain an understanding of frailty, the operationalization of frailty identification, and the roles of social and palliative care for older adults living with frailty in long-term care. The session will also explore national and international strategies that extend long-term care services to older adults residing at home and create community spaces within long-term care homes.
