My Nursing Team Actions:

Promote all self care advice above at every visit.

Malnutrition can worsen prognosis for older frail people assess using the MUST tool at least
every three months and act on the recommendations.

Ensure all medications including pain relief and preventative therapy (aspirin, statin etc) are
taken as prescribed.
Be suspicious of medicine induced falls if taking lots of tablets. Carry out a 5QT falls
assessment monthly
Take every opportunity to reduce numbers of medications taken. Reduce or stop
benzodiazepine and sedative use.
Look out for low blood pressure on standing monitor lying and standing blood pressure
My GP Actions:



Some clinical signs and symptoms may indicate an exacerbation or crisis approaching but frail older
people often do not present typically. Think:

Multi-pathology many conditions and their treatment interacting and causing problems
Medications adverse effects of medications any new medications, are the doses correct?
Social & environmental issues impact of the environment and reduced coping mechanisms
Mental health is the patient depressed, is there any evidence of cognitive impairment?

Actions to take:

Review medication what could be causing the problem? Discuss with CM or GP
Review the social/environmental circumstances has there been a change? Consider
OT/Physio referral and equipment.
Assess mental health use Geriatric Depression Score or 6CIT refer if required
Discuss where people feel they score on the living well scale and discuss at the MDT if a
referral for a Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment would be beneficial?

Confusion or drowsiness
Onset of falls
Dizzy, Light headed
Limb weakness/facial palsy/slurred speech (FACE symptoms)
