Summary
  • Are you worried about your seniors frailty? It
    can be a serious problem with growing age.
    However by following some simple steps you can
    prevent this condition easily.

3
  • What is frailty?
  • It is described as a condition or a state in
    which a person becomes weak and delicate.
  • Health specialists believe that frailty primarily
    occurs due to undiagnosed coronary artery
    disease.
  • Here are some tips that can help you prevent your
    seniors from suffering from this condition

4
Assist Them in Staying Energetic
  • One of the most effective ways to fight against
    frailty is to make them work out.
  • All seniors, even those in their 80s and 90s hold
    an ability to respond to exercises with muscle
    growth and durability.
  • Trained physical therapists can help in
    developing an exercise program.
  • Performing exercises like biceps curls or brisk
    walks are a good idea. They will increase stamina
    and enhance strength.

5
Avoid Weakening Falls
  • Anyone facing frailty should have a home safety
    assessment.
  • You should ask your senior often if they have
    ever lost their balance and had to face a fall.
  • Try contacting a home-health agency for these
    assessments performed by a nurse or other
    professional personnel.
  • In these assessments, rugs and other hazards are
    looked for and suggested measures are prescribed
    for any hazards found.

6
Promote Good Nutrition
  • With growing age seniors are less likely to feed
    a well-balanced diet with sufficient amount of
    vital nutrients.
  • To ensure that they have a diet that includes all
    the vital nutrients including proteins, vitamins,
    and minerals it sometimes is best to look into a
    caregiver.
  • They will help to prepare meals that will have
    staved off Sarcopenia and other problems.

7
Monitor Medication Schedules
  • Besides tranquilizers, medicines that cause
    electrolyte imbalance like diuretics can
    intensify weakness.
  • Drugs such as alcohol hamper balance and
    coordination as well. You should always be aware
    of how much alcohol they drink.
  • In the case they are face any balance problems,
    it is recommend to stop its consumption.
  • There are some treatments that can be used to
    prevent frailty. For example recognizing and
    treating stress and depression can help them to
    become more active.

8
Think About Hormonal Treatments
  • An individuals hormonal status can affect the
    growth of frailty. Did you know that androgen
    levels in the body exert vital effects on muscle
    building?
  • If a senior possesses hypogonadism, it can
    usually be treated with topical androgen
    supplement.
  • Androgens can help in increasing appetite and
    increasing their muscle mass.
  • The most important thing is to make sure your
    senior loved one is happy and healthy.
