Supporting the individual to think about “What is helping me and what is getting in the way?” and considering all the domains of frailty is an approach to generating opportunities for change. It may also be helpful to think “What is missing”. Working through these questions together with the individual or as a Multi-Disciplinary Team help to develop a shared understanding of a person’s sources of resilience and vulnerabilities, and the achievability of their goals.

Setting appropriate and manageable goals can make a positive contribution to an individual’s motivation; therefore it may be necessary to encourage the individual to reconsider their goal if it seems unrealistic, or to extend it if it seems under ambitious.
