Frailty in older women
Frailty is a recognised clinical condition characterised by deterioration of multiple organ systems leading to decreased physiological reserve and resilience, making frail people more vulnerable to stressors. This places them at increased risk of disability and death. A simple screening tool for frailty has been developed and validated. The aim of this paper is to explore patterns of frailty in the 1921-26 cohort and to investigate socio-demographic and lifestyle factors and medical history associated with these patterns.
