Free training from the Personalised Care Institute – Supporting people with frailty

Frailty, which describes how our bodies become vulnerable as they gradually lose their in-built reserves, is increasingly common, affecting more than one in 10 people over the age of 65, and over half the population over 85.

To support people with frailty to maintain their health and independence, new NHS guidance for integrated care boards recommends the use of proactive and personalised care approaches like continuity of care, shared decision making, personalised care support plans, and named co-ordinators who can provide a clear …
