A common dilemma that may arise as your Elderly or Senior loved one gets older is the question of when to use a cane or walker and whether or not your loved one would be open to the idea.  Although canes and walkers are designed to help an individual with balance and stability, there have been many reports of falls due to the improper use of these devices.  This article titled How Can I Convince My Mom to Start Using a Cane? showcases the all too common problem of an adult child trying to convince a parent to use a cane because of fear that they will fall if they don’t.  Bonita Lynne Beattie, VP for injury prevention for the Center for Health Aging provides some advice.  She says it is best to go through your doctor in referring you to a physical therapist who can convince your loved one why they can benefit from the use of a walking aid.  They can show your loved one the safe and proper way to use a cane or walker and also assess your loved one for additional ways to improve their walking, such as by engaging in daily exercise.  She also talks about how canes are becoming more “fashionable” and provides a link to a page that showcases some different cane styles.
