Case study 17.1

What Interventions to prevent frailty might be useful for Mr Williams at this time?

A visit from a health or allied health professional may have helped Mr Williams identify that his home had been appropriately adapted to support his physical needs. His physical healthcare needs are growing and he will require a regular health check from his General Practitioner. If he is keen to continue attending church, his former minister may have been able to help him make contact with a new church group. He could also have been encouraged perhaps by his daughter, to keep up the links with his old friends.
