What is Frailty?

Frailty is a chronic condition of physiological losses across multiple body systems that ultimately affects function and cognition. The three components of Frailty include psychological changes, physical declines, and social disruption. Frailty scores can accurately predict the risk for rehospitalization and the potential for recovery. Individuals with a high Frailty Risk Score are more vulnerable to dependency, poor outcomes and/or increased mortality rates.
