Life Journey

The following shows Jackie’s Story from fitness to frailty in which recognisable stages can be seen and if identified early, the Frailty ICARE Toolkit can be applied to support Jackie, his/her carers and the wider family at different stages of frailty severity.

We have developed Jackie’s story, a digital ageing well resource that takes the user on an ‘ageing well’ journey through the life-course of Jackie. It will be used by front-line professionals supporting older patients living with frailty and their families, as well as by health and care managers and all those promoting ageing wellness and planning ageing well services.

These diagrams are based on the Clinical Frailty Scale as developed by Dalhousie University.  For the full Clinical Frailty Scale, or permission to use or reproduce the Clinical Frailty Scale, please contact
