Frailty matters. 1.2 million Canadians 65-plus live with frailty as do 2.5 million Canadians who are their caregivers and hundreds of thousands more in our healthcare workforce. Canadians 65-plus account for nearly half of Canada’s healthcare spending (almost $100 billion), but only 15 percent of the population.
