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…
