Why Frailty Matters and Using the Frailty Matters House members event

Section: Membership Location: Online Date of event: 09/03/2021 at 10-11.30

Join us for the second digital members session on our Frailty Matters project.

We are delighted to invite you to our next digital members networking event, Why Frailty Matters and Using the Frailty Matters House. This will be the second session on our Frailty Matters project with University of the West of Scotland and NHS Ayrshire and Arran.

Frailty is a term used to describe how our bodies gradually lose their in-built reserves as we age. This may mean that we do not bounce back from an illness as quickly as we would have before. Frailty affects around 1 in 10 people aged over 65 years in the community and around half of people aged over 85 years.

Working together, older people with experience of frailty, their carers and community nurses in Ayrshire have co-produced a coaching and educational programme and developed the ‘Frailty Matters House’ as an educational tool.

We are interested in hearing from people from other areas of Scotland who are affected by frailty – as a person living with frailty, an unpaid carer or family member. We would like to share the ‘Frailty Matters House’ with you and explore how it could be used to support you, or those who are important to you, to live well with frailty.
