The best walking aid depends on the amount of balance assistance needed. Some may require the use of a walker to assist with balance; others might require occasional use of a cane. The best device to use is the device that ensures safety, while also allowing you to exercise the muscles. Individuals who can ambulate with only occasional use of a cane should not use a walker. Do as much as possible, without compromising safety.

By making sure you have an annual flu shot and tetanus, measles, mumps, rubella, hepatitis B, and pneumonia vaccinations, you can help prevent illnesses that can cause you to age.
