A person might be physically fit, but mentally frail, requiring constant supervision. A mentally frail person could be exhibiting signs of senile dementia like Alzheimer's or any other form of dementia, and as such may be confused, disorientated, agitated, restless or anxious.
Dementia is the loss of cognitive functioning thinking, remembering, and reasoning and behavioral abilities to such an extent that it interferes with a person's daily life and activities. Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia in older adults. Affected people increasingly rely on others for assistance, often placing a burden on the caregiver. The pressures can include social, psychological, physical, and economic elements.
We are committed to giving you and your loved one the highest standard of long-term care. Even though the definition of frail is commonly “physically weak, fragile or delicate”, we experience that our Frail Care facilities are a stimulating and caring environment.
