When a friend of my mother's, who had recently undergone knee replacement surgery, informed me that she had just ordered a Martha Stewart cane, I was left a little stunned: "A what? A Martha Stewart cane?" I am usually so on top of Martha's product launches that I was more shocked at myself for not realizing she had issued a new line of safety and mobility aids with Medline back in April. Shame on me!This new line, of course, plays perfectly well into Martha's focus on healthy living; the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mt. Sinai Hospital in New York City is just one of the many initiatives she has taken to help a rapidly-growing population of aging individuals find the care they need and deserve. Her book, Living The Good Long Life, is an excellent compendium of information in this field. Now, of course, she is bringing her signature style to an area where style has never really been welcome: canes, walkers, shower chairs, over-bed tables and bath mats.
Offered in pretty designs and colours, such as gingham and plaid, faux-bois and her signature turquoise and gray, seniors who require mobility aids at home, or those recovering from injury, now have style choices that reach beyond the metallic, chrome and black.
