Mother (91) has three walking canes and a walker for outside. I recenty secured her an Acorn Stairlift also as the house she has lived in since late 1950s is a two story with basement. I agree with her Dr. that the walker will make her lazier in the house. She has a new apppointment soon. Suffers with Dementia which I hotice is worsening yearly a little bit - or a lot depending upon whay activity we are tying to do...the telephone is challenging now, for example - but only for business tasks. With her family and friends she can navigate it easier. What doies the communithy think? She has a home attendant with Guild Net, by the way...only 20 hours a week until I marry and move out in two months.
