She is very stooped over when we go outside. If she did not take my arm or another caregivers' arm when outside here apartment, then she would fall (she did about five years ago and broke a rib. Her son thinks she should have a cane.
But what type, given that she is 4'8" and wears about 100bs? Footed or regular and what is the best type of handle (her hand strength is normal.)
Does anyone have experience with a cane for a person with severe memory loss. I doubt she will remember to use it in her apartment (she lives alone).
Going to an OT or PT seems like an unnessary step. There are so many smart people on this site; I am sure someone can answer this question.
