With warmer weather we are tempted to slip into scuff type slippers. Wear slippers that are good fitting. Be aware that you may be at high risk of falling if unsteady on your feet or just weak.  Do not be tempted to  walk around in socks or stockings without shoes when walking on tiled floors or polished floorboards. It can be very slippery. Ensure your footwear fits well, in good repair and free from grease or dirt.

Bones weakened from metastatic cancer can break or fracture. Even minor falls can result in broken bones. It is extremely important for the patient to take special care.
