Medicare should provide a walker and PT should come to the house to show her how to navigate with it. Payless has great maryjanes with a velcro strap, ll bean has an even better maryjane, my mom loves them both. Rubber soles are key for my mom, wishing you and Edna the best!

Usually they discharge them with the walker. Mom insisted on a cane, but she tripped over it and broke her shoulder. Walkers are safer, and of course, the status symbol is a fancy rollator with all the accessories with a custom paint job. Yah, pinstripes and the words "Hardly Davidson" with some flames.

Tghe Dr should order one before she goes home or maybe a quad came or absolute luxury a rollator. Tell your tenent what she needs and she will find a used one for her.

daughter is a total communication breakdown. my brain is growing auxilliary circuits to compensate. edna needs a walker. shes sat in a wheelchair for a couple of years and lost leg muscle. she is walking well right now and may not need live in care for quite some time. shes going home to indep living this monday. she says she just feels safe with me. duh, shes in control when were together.

Well done Capt. now Edna has her shoes ask the PT if she needs anything different to help her walk better and safer. glad stupid daughter has finally got her mind round everything it takes a while and lots of re-inforcement (not with a sledge hammer)

oh, edna finally got her shoes from her daughter. shes in phys rehab and doing remarkably well. they told me at first that we could go out any time we wanted as it was helping her cognizance. today they told me to curtail it till after 4 pm. she needs more phys therapy now. i agree. shes 90 in about another month and starting to walk pretty well. im sure they know what theyre doing. weve went from daughter hiding her from the doc to daughter taking charge in only 2 months. lol..thats some progress.. doesnt matter how we get there..

btw you can also get her those fluffy super soft socks that go up to her ankle with the rubber dots on the bottom to help her not slide around.

Nikki99, Captain's aunt Edna was hallucinating (or imagining) that she was 300 years old (from an earlier post of his). Captain has a very good sense of humor that I totally appreciate. :)

300 yr old? Am I the only one missing something here ? At any rate, 103 lbs would be a size 6 I would think.

How about taking a length and width measurement of her feet. Then go to a real shoe store where they actually have salespeople and ask for their help in determiniglng a size. If you had a Nordstrom's in your area that would be ideal. Lacking that, get her measurements and go to an online site like ZAPPOS ( trying to plug the local company that is swarming all over downtown Las Vegas) and see if you can get help in figuring it out. Or sneak around the care facility and borrow others shoes of various sizes to find out what fits.

I went through the slipper hunt with my Mom a few years ago who's the same age and weight as Edna.... it was a nightmare trying to find her something as for a tiny woman she had long wide feet.

Store after store after store we searched. Even if we found one that actually fit, she either didn't like the color or the price, so we would come home empty handed.

How about those wonderful fuzzy socks that come in all sorts of crazy fun colors? They would be great for bed or chair wear, but not for floor wear as they could be slippery. You can find them in a lot of stores, even grocery stores have been known to seen them.

Yes, she's definitely a "small" in my part of the world at her weight and size. Or a 5 or 6 if you have to buy a size.

I'd go for the 'small', 'medium' and 'large' variety at Walmart. :)
