Father has MMSE of 24 but is up until now very mobile. Can manage a 3 mile health walk, but at the end of the last one he fell flat on face. He has been having probably every three or four days an incident where he becomes slightly off balance, regains his balance and says 'I'm staggering'. Having done mobility with MIL I can appreciate how the wheeled walkers are absolute game changers and much better than a stick. Father refused the idea even of a hikers walking pole and was adamant would not use a walker. What should I do. The pavements in this area are slabs and are absolutely abysmal. Should I insist on a using an aid. I might manage to get him to use a shopping trolley because then he is helping me by pushing the shopping and that is OK. We are getting new shoes on Monday for him as old ones are about 2 years old. I am also going to fast track plans we had to convert downstairs toilet into small wet room. Anyone got any ideas on anything helpful.
