Although Mom was able to walk most of her life, she did suffer a pathological fracture just 4 months before her death. After intense rehab, I was able to bring here back home, but the use of her walkers was a thing of the past. Mom was in a wheelchair on the few times she was out of bed. I had a transport chair for her which was fine, but I found that an actual wheelchair was more comfortable for her, particularly when I outfitted it with a fluffy cushion. I was able to take her out on the back deck to soak up a bit of sunshine every once in a while which made us both happy. Although wheelchairs may not be the sexiest present for a senior citizen, it sure may be the most useful.
