Frailty Trajectories, Resilience and Quality of life in the Retirement Village Community

20 Nov 2019

This research aims to assess:

  • The effects of a multidisciplinary team intervention on frailty trajectories by repeating interRAI-Community Health Assessment (CHA) on the original Retirement Village intervention participants;
  •  Frailty prevalence and trajectories in all Retirement Village Phase One participants; and
  • The relationship between frailty, resilience and quality of life.

The research will also validate quality of life (QoL) items in interRAI-CHA by a validated QoL tool, and assess the relationship between baseline frailty and healthcare outcomes, such as hospitalisations and entering residential care.

This study was funded under Ageing Well National Science Challenge Emergent Opportunities grant.
