Senior Parents: Canes and Walking Sticks

From Fashionable Canes

One of My Favorites: Wildflowers

I’ve been thinking a lot about walking sticks and canes and how they help prevent falls. After certain age, a fall almost guarantees that the activities of daily living (ADL’s) become more and more difficult thereby leading to other health problems.

I mentioned in a recent posting how I worry about my mom falling, so I sent her lots of  web links to places where one can purchase canes and walking sticks.  Some of these links are quite interesting and some of the canes look fashionable — one can coordinate them with clothes, etc.

I wonder how to make them feel fashionable?

Several people wrote to ask me to post the links. Prices range from reasonable to off of the charts…

  1. It’s great to help your elderly relatives be comfortable with walking sticks, whether that’s in your home or a retirement community. That is the great tip for anyone who has someone they care about getting older. Thanks for posting!
