Frailty in older age JSNA

Joint Strategic Needs Assessment (JSNA) identifies key issues affecting the health and wellbeing of our residents, both now and in the future.

As we get older, our health and sense of wellbeing usually lowers. The Office for National Statistics (ONS) suggests this is because of changes in our personal circumstances such as poorer health, living alone for the first time and increased feelings of loneliness. 

Studies show that around 10% of people over 65 years old are frail. This rises to 25-50% of people over 85 years old.

Frail people are likely to have a lot of different issues or problems which together have a large impact on their health, confidence and wellbeing.
