DRAGONFLY Program – information for healthcare professionals

Sage welcomes referrals to the DRAGONFLY Program from Healthcare professionals. Please note that the program is designed to identify and assist individuals living with moderate frailty – seniors between that score a 4, 5, or 6 - as defined by the clinical frailty scale above:

Please also note that while Sage is able to address most aspects of frailty, we are unable to address some medical aspects of frailty directly at Sage. Accordingly, we might be working with you to connect to health resources like physiotherapy, home care, or support the senior as they navigate relevant medical programs.


An Integrated Model

DRAGONFLY uses an integrated model that addresses both the physical and social needs of the senior. We work with the senior to link them to internal and external resources that will improve their quality of life, and follow the senior for at least twelve months to track their progress and make adjustments when necessary.


Domains of Assessment:

  • Personal well-being
  • Cognition
  • Mental Health
  • Functional Performance
  • Social Engagement
  • Social Support
  • Medication Use
  • Nutrition
  • Continence
  • Physical Environment
  • Safety and Security
