My Mom is 76 and has never really exercised (other than a short time at Curves, but I don't think she really worked up a sweat...). The other day she came to my daughter's orchestra concert, and on the way to the car afterwards she tripped and fell in the parking lot. Apparently she didn't notice the speed bump. This is the 3rd fall that I know of, all of which happened when she wasn't really watching her feet or paying attention to exactly where she stepped. I'm concerned that next time she might break a bone. (She sprained her shoulder this time and was unable to drive home.) Anyone can make a mistake, but I'm starting to wonder if she needs a cane or walker. She was embarrassed so I don't want to make her feel bad, but I don't want to ignore it if this is a potentially dangerous trend. Has anyone been through anything similar with a loved one? Any advice?
