Frailty and the Community
As Singapore accelerates to become a nation of super seniors by 2030, where 1 in 4 individuals will be of age 65 an above, it is vital for health services to address and manage frailty early. SATA CommHealth has partnered with various community services to provide frailty management so that seniors can keep fit, prevent falls and adopt practical and useful strategies to lead an independent life, despite being in their golden years.
