Multifactorial treatment for frailty and mobility in elderly

On what factors does treatment success depend?

Multifactorial intervention can improve frailty and mobility in older people. In a recent study, one such intervention was individualised to each participant's needs. Delivered by a team including 2 physiotherapists, a dietician and a geriatrician (coordinated by a physiotherapist), all participants received 10 physiotherapy home visits and a home exercise program consisting of lower limb strength and balance exercises to be completed 3 to 5 times per week for 12 months. Some participants received dietician management. Medical management included medication review.
