The prevalence of frailty was measured by the Survey of Health, Ageing, and Retirement in Europe Frailty Instrument (SHARE–FI) among older adults (N = 170) receiving occupational therapy services in a skilled nursing facility. Of these, 72.9% (n = 124) were frail upon evaluation. The results support occupational therapists’ use of the SHARE–FI to distinguish frailty from other clinical conditions to provide effective services.
