Frailty is an aging-related physiological decline syndrome characterized by significant vulnerability to adverse health outcomes. Awareness of frailty and associated risks for adverse health outcomes can improve care for this most vulnerable of patients.
Until I spoke to my brand new guest host, Dr. Elena Mucci, I didn’t know that frailty was a medical thing. Additionally, it’s something that we can avoid or improve. Once we run out of physical reserves, the smallest injury or illness can send us into a very negative state.
Joining me on the podcast is Dr. Elena Mucci. She is a gerontologist in the UK caring for older adults and helping them to age well. With this in mind, she gave me a list of topics that all of us should understand if we want to age well and avoid dementia.
