We'll need a few details on the person being assessed to get started.
Invite others to take this Frailty Risk Assessment:
Pre-Frail (under 25%)
A Frailty Risk Score under 25% indicates someone who is very fit, robust and motivated. The person will likely do well in rehab and return to baseline health and function. Our clinical care is designed to support a speedy recovery while avoiding any new health problems.
Mildly Frail (between 25% and 29%)
A Frailty Risk Score between 25% and 29% indicates someone who is managing well but is less fit now and likely not as physically active. Even so, the person will likely do well in rehab and return to baseline health and function. Our clinical care is designed to support a full recovery while avoiding any new health problems.
Moderately Frail (between 30% and 39%)
A Frailty Risk Score between 30% and 39% indicates someone who is moderately frail. Fatigue and other symptoms may have limited activities and now they are less likely to return to baseline health and function. Completing rehab may be difficult. Optimized clinical approach should be personalized, and every effort will be made to support recovery and prevent bad outcomes from occurring. Understanding care priorities and preference are very important and documenting advance directives will help honor their wishes.
Severely Frail (over 40%)
A Frailty Risk Score 40% and greater indicates someone who is Severely Frail and as the score increases so does the risk for complications, in spite of excellent care. They are likely to decline rapidly with the next illness or procedure. Honest communications, managing complications, and addressing new issues quickly are recommended. Completion of Advance Care Documents is critical.
