@latherunique @bowker_helen British Geriatric Society (2015) define it as a distinctive health state related to the ageing process in which multiple body systems gradually lose their in-built reserves. This can have such an impact on an individual's function. As you say... this is not age related. #OTalk

#OTalk In my opinion, frailty means a person is at a higher risk of developing a poorer health including their mobility and independence in participating in meaningful occupations and feeling physically lower in energy. I think it can occur to all ages, not only older people :)

@Jeni_woods_OT @pjmasonOT @bowker_helen For sure- I read this book a few days ago. That girl ended up going all out on her last few days alive before she passed away due to cancer. Her doctors want her to go out with a bang! #otalk https://t.co/jl79Fg47ub
