Grandfather, very slow movement. Should I get him a walker?

In brief: Not a bad idea, but

A walker/cane can be useful, but i would have him evaluated by his doc/nurse to see why he is so.
We do slow down with age, but certain medical conditions/medications can make things much worse. Make sure you remove clutters in the home and have his vision/glasses checked. Good luck!
