Frailty: What You Need To Know
You are welcomed to join us online for our next iGeriCare Live event. On Thursday, April 29th, Drs. Anthony Levinson and Richard Sztramko will meet to discuss frailty.
For some, frailty can feel like a label that is embarrassing or shameful. Many people think that frailty only happens near the end of life and that there is nothing you can do about it. Getting older doesn’t necessarily mean someone is frail, but it does increase the odds of developing multiple medical conditions and frailty.
Dr. Richard SztramkoGeriatrician, Assistant Professor, McMaster University
Through his work with patients with dementia and their families, Dr. Sztramko came to understand that there is a desire and need for online education about dementia that has been developed by experts in geriatrics. This inspired him to pursue the creation of iGeriCare.
