    This is a great video! I need to have my parents watch this, even though we don’t get snow here in So Cal. But tbh falling is already my biggest problem and I’m 36 years old. And these days I only wear sneakers. What’s going to happen when I’m in my 60s and 70s? I think about this every day. But by then, I’m sure things will be different.

    This is such wonderful and useful information. I live in a different country from my parents and now that they need me it is soo hard. My husband too – out parents are late 70’s to mid 80’s. I will home shortly to see them and I value this information! Thanks
