What is frailty?
If someone is living with frailty, it doesn’t mean they lack capacity or are incapable of living a full and independent life. When used properly, it describes someone's overall resilience and how this relates to their chance to recover quickly following health problems. It can affect people of all ages, often those with long term conditions.
What is a Frailty Care Coordinator?
Our Frailty care coordinator team holistically support patients living with frailty within the community. We work closely with our patients to help support and manage their health and wellbeing to continue to help our patients live independently in their own homes for as long as possible. Our role is to be a point of contact for both patients and their families and carers, whilst working alongside other health, social care and voluntary agencies.
How can a Frailty Care Coordinator help me?
