Canada’s Network for Older Canadians Living with Frailty
Canadian Frailty Network (CFN) is Canada’s sole network devoted to improving care for older Canadians living with frailty and supporting their families and caregivers.
We do this by increasing frailty recognition and assessment, by increasing evidence for decision-making, by advancing evidence-based changes to care, by training the next generation of care professionals and scientists, by catalyzing change in Canada’s health and social care systems, and always by engaging with older adults and their families and caregivers.
CFN’s AVOID Frailty Program for Healthy Aging is one of the ways we’re catalyzing change in Canada’s health and social care systems, and engaging older adults and care partners.
It’s an evidence-informed program that connects older adults and their care partners to their community to facilitate healthy aging and help them stay independent. The free program is run through our Centres for Healthy Aging, which operate in a local context to implement our AVOID Frailty Program for Healthy Aging. The program provides a healthy aging assessment, education and resources, and a library of local community services and programs to support older adults, their care partners, and healthcare professionals. It’s tailored to your local community experience.
