OBJECTIVE To determine the effect of frailty on decline in physical functioning and to examine if chronic diseases modify this effect. METHODS The study sample was derived from the Longitudinal Aging Study Amsterdam and included respondents with initial ages 65 and over at T(2) (1995/1996), who participated at T(1) (1992/1993) and T(2) and performed physical performance tests (n = 1,152) or reported functional limitations (n = 1,321) at T(2) and T(3) (1998/1999). Nine frailty markers were… CONTINUE READING
