Frailty determinants in two long-term care settings: Assistant living facilities and home and community-based programs.

Published

Journal Article

There is limited knowledge on differences in frailty among residents in assisted living facilities (ALF) and home and community-based services (HCBS). This study used a retrospective cross-sectional design to compare frailty determinants in two long-term care settings. The HCBS setting had a greater proportion of positive responses to 9 of 14 frailty indicators. The ALF setting had a greater proportion to only 2 of the 14 frailty indicators. The finding that the HCBS setting had a significantly greater proportion of participants with positive frailty indicators as compared to the ALF setting suggests the degree of frailty risk is different by health care setting.
