      I use a cane for short walks and have a motorized scooter for long walks.

      Try a walking cane first! The aluminum ones can be adjustable and they come in all colors and with all sorts of grips. It could be a small step towards using mobility aids <3

          @mikilove I don't know what they are called but would the arm crutches help any better than a cane? Otherwise yes a wheelchair will be one kf your last options
