People who are robust, active, energetic and motivated. These people commonly exercise regularly. They are among the fittest for their age.
People who have no active disease symptoms but are less fit than category 1. Often, they exercise or are very active occasionally, e.g. seasonally.
People whose medical problems are well controlled, but are not regularly active beyond routine walking.
While not dependent on others for daily help, often symptoms limit activities. A common complaint is being “slowed up”, and/or being tired during the day.
These people often have more evident slowing, and need help in high order IADLs (finances, transportation, heavy housework, medications). Typically, mild frailty progressively impairs shopping and walking outside alone, meal preparation and housework.
People who need help with all outside activities and with keeping house. Inside, they often have problems with stairs and need help with bathing and might need minimal assistance (cueing, standby) with dressing.
Completely dependent for personal care from whatever cause (physical or cognitive). Even so, they seem stable and not at high risk of dying (within ~ 6 months).
Very Severely Frail
Completely dependent, approaching the end of life. Typically, they could not recover even from a minor illness.
Approaching the end of life. This category applies to people with a life expectancy &lessthan; 6 months, who are not otherwise evidently frail.
Wellbeing Colour Code
Personal Icon Border & Wellbeing Tag in the Banner *
The coloured border around the Personal Icon in the Banner indicates the Patient’s Personal Wellbeing Status that was last entered in the Contact Log.
This uses a traffic-light colour scheme to show at-a-glance how they’re doing, where pale green is the most positive state, whereas a dark red border is reserved for the most serious concern.
In addition to the coloured border, their wellbeing is also indicated in the text that is displayed alongside the matching Tag in the Banner.
*Depending on your version of CHAI, this feature may be disabled.
1. No obvious concern
