The results of the present study support the conclusion that elderly persons can remain independent, even when already at risk of developing frailty, or when already considered frail, as only three of elderly persons here presented minimal dependence.

Prevalence and factors associated with frailty in an older population from the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: Muscle weakness and physical inactivity were most striking in the development of frailty, which was associated with worse QOL and FC, despite most seniors be independent.

An observational, cross-sectional, descriptive and analytical study was performed.

The study consisted of a sample of elderly persons with a mean age of The mean age of the three groups was similar.

While this finding agreed with the aforementioned studies, 1931 there was no difference between FR and NF and between PF and NF individuals, suggesting that even elderly individuals not at risk of frailty may have a negative opinion of their health, or in other words, in this sample perception of health was not decisive for frailty and vice versa.

Persons aged 60 years or more were surveyed about the number of falls in the preceding six months, the characteristics and consequences of each falls.

Compared to other Brazilian studies, the degree of frailty was relatively high among the elderly population studied. However, in the above study 9 the average age was higher and caregiver reports were considered, which may have influenced the results and caused them to differ from the present findings.
