Improving care for older Canadians living with frailty

Canada’s population is aging quickly. Today, many Canadians are living longer and healthier into their later years. But as the number of seniors grows, so does the number of Canadians living with frailty with more complex health challenges and care needs.

Canada’s ability to care for more than 1.2 million older adults living with frailty along with their families, caregivers and care providers received a significant boost with the announcement March 1st of $23.9 million in renewal funding for Canadian Frailty Network from the Government of Canada’s Networks of Centres of Excellence program for a second five-year term (2017-2022). This funding will be leveraged by $30 million in projected cash and in-kind contributions from 150 partners in the academic, industry, community and government sectors. Click here for details.

CFN is Canada’s exclusive network for older adults living with frailty. We facilitate evidence-based research, knowledge sharing and clinical practices that improve healthcare outcomes for older Canadians living with frailty, their families and caregivers.
