Frailty can increase the likelihood of hospital readmission and the transition from home to assisted care, decrease life satisfaction, and reduce lifespan. This small study examined how perceptions of frailty of older adults changed when they participated in a six-part OT-led community education program. The repeated-measures analysis revealed a reduction in frailty-risk identification, improvement in walking speed, and increased grip strength for occupational engagement.
