Remember the lyrics of old songs about falling? They included falling for you, I fall in love too easily and falling in love with love. Also, tripping the light fantastic.

However, now in your sunset years, falling has a much more serious meaning. For senior travelers, accidents aboard ship, in airports, on ramps, in bathtubs, wet city streets and many other potentially dangerous situations are always possible.

Before every journey away from home, consult with your family physician. If a cane or walker is suggested, take it along. Also, be sure to have a companion with you at all times. Wear sensible shoes, be extra careful as you roam, and make sure the word trip only applies to your enjoyable and safe journey.
