Talk with Others

Discuss with the group: Share any new strategies that you will try as a result of what you’ve learned in this module. Feel free to pose questions to other caregivers regarding tips and tricks that they have used to encourage a person living with frailty to stay active.What’s Next?

As you know, staying active can increase a person’s quality of life and is closely linked to nutrition and bladder health. As you move into the next module, which explores ‘ins and outs’, you are encouraged to remember how the topics throughout the course are linked, and reflect on how your recent learning fits into a coherent plan for your caregiving overall.
