A wide range of services is provided in CommFit programme, including:
To assess an individual’s physical function and health to determine his/her level of frailty. Taking the assessment early is crucial to identify and treat potentially reversible medical conditions.
Exercise is an essential component of maintaining physical function and mobility in frail individuals. Our CHT will advise you on the type of exercise to maintain your strength, balance and stamina.
Nutrition is another essential component for frailty prevention and management, as adequate nutrition helps to maintain muscle strength and body mass, reducing the risk of falls and fractures. Our Community Health Team and dietitians will advise you on how to improve your nutritional intake.
Caregivers play a key role in providing assistance with daily activities, coordinating health care services and providing emotional support to frail individuals. Our CHT will educate caregivers on frailty and provide them with support to care for their loved ones.
Frailty can increase one’s risk of adverse drug reactions and drug interactions. Our pharmacists will review your medication to optimise your medication use.
Home environment assessment
Frail individuals may have physical limitations that make it difficult for them to navigate their home safely. Our CHT will assess your home environment to help you move safely at home, for e.g. identifying fall hazards.
Referral to other services
If you have care needs that are beyond our programme, our CHT will make a referral for you to access other services that could meet your needs appropriately.
