How do I Identify Frailty in the Person I am Caring For?
Using a screening tool can be a first step to identifying frailty. The Pictorial Fit-Frail Scale (PFFS) is an example of a screening tool that can be used by family and friend caregivers. This tool takes approximately five minutes to complete.
A completed PFFS can be used as a tool to support communication with the person you care for and health care professionals.
