I would like to thank you to the panelists for joining and sharing. It takes courage to join and discuss your personal situation openly. I have been on this journey with my mother for a few years now.
Im wondering that after those awful falls, Betsy might consider using a walker (instead of a walking stick).
I mean Judith
