PRECAUTIONS TO AVOID FALLS FOR THE AGED :

The falls and Fractures seem common to all ages . During young days it is due to accidents or at play . It is different as we get old . Even without being at play or an accident the aged fall in the toilet and other places and get fractured .

The gait becomes unstable as one gets aged for many reasons .
* Muscles and joints get weakened .
* the cotton wool feeling increases in the bottom portion of the feet as diabetes advances . When D vitamin deficiency also one gets the feeling . As a result the aged person isn't able to feel the ground below and get firm footing . Even if it is slightly wet and smooth may slip and cause a fall .
*Plantar Fasciitis , another condition that causes inflation of the Fibrous tissue at the bottom of the feet . There will be constant pain while while placing that foot.

Very good basic tips. more  
Some 15 years back there was a report about a nano generian doctor , practicing in Chennai . He was single and still practicing general medicine mostly being a Family doctor . Almost 70 patients flocked to meet him in his run down house cum clinic . He had minimal help from domestic helps as he was a conservative man to clean his own vessels ,cook simple food. There were no doubt rooms one for consultation & another for patients to sit if there is place .Then there was a courtyard and bed room .Kitchen , behind bath rooms .

He had steel ropes with guiding rings in the court yard to assist him to walk down to other rooms in the house . The great man lived like that for a decade .

He continued to practice as it was a calling from God . Patients flocked to him as he knew each patient and the ailments so well , the ever forgetting patient didn't have to repeat old medical history .

THE ICING ON THIS IS A PAEDIATRICIAN WHO WAS A PATIENT FROM HIS CHILD HOOD BRINGS HIS CHILD FOR CONSULTATION WITH THIS NANO GENERIAN. more
