Vestibular Disorder


I am a spouse of a person with Vestibular Disease.  This is an inner disorder that causes disturbance to a person's balance which can be quite debilitating.  He has learned to keep his balance by using his feet to feel the ground or walk beneath him rather than the his sight and inner ear.  This requires the person to rely on a flat surface to walk and find his way.  To prevent my husband from falling in our home.  We need to keep all pathways clear of obstacles and surfaces free of bumps.  A mislaid toy or parking the vacuum in a pathway can cause a fall.
