BACKGROUND: Frailty is a state of increased vulnerability to adverse outcomes. The frailty index (FI), defined by the deficit accumulation approach, is a sensitive instrument to measure levels of frailty, and therefore important for longitudinal studies of aging. AIMS: To develop an FI in the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam (LASA), and to examine the predictive validity of this FI for 19-year mortality. METHODS: LASA is an ongoing study among Dutch older adults, based on a nationally representative sample...

BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: To test the effects of Strong for Life (SFL) on the physical performance and self-rated health of older adults receiving Home and Community-Based Services (HCBS). DESIGN: Randomized, two-group trial with pre-post measures. SETTING: In-home exercise program. PARTICIPANTS: Clients aged 65-95 (n=42) and their Home Care Aide (HCA) (n=32) were randomly assigned to a usual care and SFL intervention or usual care control group...

BACKGROUND: Public awareness of and attitude toward disease is an important issue for patients. Public awareness of essential tremor (ET) has never been studied. METHODS: We administered a 10-min, 31-item questionnaire to 250 consecutive enrollees. These included three samples carefully chosen to have a potential range of awareness of ET: 100 individuals ascertained from a vascular disease clinic, 100 individuals from a general neurology clinic, and 50 Parkinson's disease (PD) patients...

BACKGROUND: The Frailty Index (FI), proposed by Rockwood and Mitniski, measures the deficits accumulation occurring with aging, and can be generated from the results of a comprehensive clinical assessment. Its construct (based on pure arithmetical assumptions) may represent a unique feature for supporting unbiased comparisons among clinical facilities/services. OBJECTIVE: To propose an example depicting how the FI may support health economic evaluations and provide insights for public health...

BACKGROUND: The objective of this study is to identify and review screening tools for frailty in older adults admitted to inpatient hospital care with respect to their validity, reliability and feasibility. METHODS: Studies were identified through systematically searching PubMed, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), Embase and PsycINFO and screening reference lists till June 2014. Papers dealing with screening tools aimed at identifying frail older patients in in-hospital care, and including information about validity, reliability or feasibility, were included in the review...

OBJECTIVES: This study used latent growth curve modeling (LGCM) to estimate the independent and joint associations between frailty and depression trajectories and likelihood of nursing home admission and falls resulting in injury. METHODS: Data come from five waves (2004-2012) of the Health and Retirement Study. Community-dwelling individuals aged 51 and older (N = 13,495) were analyzed using LGCM. Frailty was measured using a frailty index consisting of 30 deficits...

BACKGROUND: Comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) is a multidimensional method to detect frailty in elderly patients. Time saving could be accomplished by identifying those individual items that classify elderly cancer patients at risk for feasibility of chemotherapy and for mortality. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Patients older than 70 years of age were assessed before the first chemotherapy administration. GA consisted of the Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA), Informant Questionnaire on Cognitive Decline in the Elderly (IQCODE), Groningen Frailty Indicator (GFI) and Mini Mental State Examination (MMSE)...

COMPARATIVE STUDY
Kenneth Rockwood, Miranda McMillan, Arnold Mitnitski, Susan E Howlett
INTRODUCTION: Easily employed measures of frailty are needed in the evaluation of elderly people. Recently, a frailty index (FI) based on deficits in commonly used laboratory tests (the FI-LAB) has been proposed. To address the usefulness of the FI-LAB in long-term care (LTC) settings, we studied institutionalized participants in the Canadian Study of Health and Aging first clinical examination database. Our objectives were to compare the FI-LAB with a clinical FI LTC (FI-Clinical-LTC) focused on common health deficits seen in LTC and to assay its relationship with mortality...

BACKGROUND: Despite having the third highest proportion of people aged 60 years and older in the world, Germany has been recently reported as having the lowest prevalence of frailty of 15 European countries. The objective of the study is to describe the prevalence of frailty in a large nationwide population-based sample and examine associations with sociodemographic, social support and health characteristics. METHODS: We performed a cross-sectional analysis of the first wave of the German Health Interview and Examination Survey for Adults (DEGS1) conducted 2008-2011...

OBJECTIVES: A better understanding of the essential components of frailty is important for future developments of management strategies. We aimed to assess the incremental validity of a Comprehensive Model of Frailty (CMF) over Frailty Index (FI) in predicting self-rated health and functional dependency amongst near-centenarians and centenarians. DESIGN: Cross-sectional, community-based study. SETTING: Two community-based social and clinical networks...

OBJECTIVES: The objective of this study was to establish the extent to which frailty was associated with attrition and then compare estimates of frailty prevalence and progression estimated from the observed data to those estimated after imputation. DESIGN: Population-based cohort study. SETTING: The Health in Men Study (HIMS) with frailty estimated at Wave 2 (2001/2004) and Wave 3 (2008) and mortality follow-up to 2010. PARTICIPANTS: Participants were 10,305 community-dwelling men aged 70 and older, followed for up to 10 years...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Malnutrition and frailty are frequent and serious conditions within the geriatric population. Both are of multifactorial origin and linked to adverse outcomes. The purpose of this study was to analyze the relationships between these two concepts in a representative sample of rural elderly Lebanese with a high prevalence of malnutrition. METHODS: A cross-sectional study including a representative sample of 1200 elderly Lebanese aged 65 and over living in the community...

BACKGROUND: Social factors are important for health; the concept of social vulnerability considers them holistically and can be quantified using a social vulnerability index (SVI). AIMS: Investigate the SVI in relation to mortality and disability, independent of frailty, in middle-aged and older European adults, and examine how this relationship differs across countries. METHODS: 18,289 community-dwelling participants 50 years and older from SHARE wave 1 (2004) were included in our sample...

MULTICENTER STUDY
Eunice Park-Lee, Lisa Fredman, Marc Hochberg, Kimberly Faulkner
OBJECTIVES: To determine whether positive affect is associated with a lower incidence of frailty over 2 years in elderly community-dwelling women and to test the stress-buffering hypothesis by evaluating whether these associations differed in caregivers and noncaregivers. DESIGN: Prospective cohort study with three annual interviews conducted in four U.S. communities between 1999 and 2004. SETTING: Home-based interviews. PARTICIPANTS: Three hundred thirty-seven caregiver and 617 noncaregiver participants from the Caregiver-Study of Osteoporotic Fractures (Caregiver-SOF) who were not frail at the baseline Caregiver-SOF interview...

OBJECTIVE: To assess the receipt of effective healthcare interventions in England by adults aged 50 or more with serious health conditions. DESIGN: National structured survey questionnaire with face to face interviews covering medical panel endorsed quality of care indicators for both publicly and privately provided care.
