What I find most dangerous that not one Occupational Therapist mentioned is:
Lack of safe lighting!
So many rooms have a light switch only at one end of the room, or worse, only at the foot of the stairs!
Anyone can accidentally drop something that could make a person with a cane go cane sailing with the predictable unhappy landing. I've had to resort to carrying a rechargeable flashlight in my purse to get from the front door to my room. There just isn't a good place right inside the front door for a lamp. Maybe inside a book case or beside it could be an unobtrusive push-button light like the ones in some closets.
I don't see a way to clap on a clapper light without my cane really breaking something . . .
