I"m sure that when I look at these web sites, there will be plenty of helpful tips. As my mom got older, we worked on things like making certain that robes were hemmed up to a good non-tripping height, took up some throw rugs, added a grab handle at the door into the house for stability when stepping up 1 step; making the stair banister sturdier and that it have an end piece that butts back to the wall [a older banister is usually just a single rod with open space to the wall which can catch a billowing sleeve, etc. Most areas current code prohibit this kind of bannister]

We bought a pattern in England in the 1980s.. [Military].. Now it's out of production... broke 2 plates last year... got them replaced thru Replacements Ltd. Darn, maybe I should have thought about returning to the UK and going to boot sales...
