Frailty is a state of vulnerability in older adults for adverse outcomes. We aimed to screen for frailty and understand its impact on daily living and participation. A cross-sectional study used a phone survey (Stage I—1,571 participants) and house visits (Stage II—120 participants). Older adults with frailty were significantly different from the nonfrail participants in all demographic and daily activities characteristics. Frailty significantly influenced instrumental activities of daily living and participation.
