The main tools I use to help me during the day are - My dressing stick, which I can use to pull up pants, take off socks and to assist me in getting dressed.
To help me get around I have my cane and a 4 Wheel Walker that I use. My cane is the mainstay getting me around the house and when I go out in the world I take my walker. A little shout out to the Hubby who got me a very cool cane that has multi-colored butterflies on it. It is very colorful, and matches many outfits (that is what he thought when he got it for me). I have received many compliments on it since it is so happy and colorful and much better than a generic gray one. My Walker is deluxe and it is a little more hip than the one I used in the hospital at first which I an thankful for. If I had to learn to use a walker 30 years before I expected to at least make it cool and hip. So, when they ordered me the 4 Wheel variety and it was "Red" I was a happy lady. You know it is really the small things when a walker makes you happy :).
