Can anything be done about an elderly person who loses balance? My father is 87 and in excellent health otherwise, but recently seems to lose his balance. He has never fallen, and the doctor says is to use a cane. Is this normal for his age?

Yes because hearing loss and balance problems increase as people age. Half of all people over 70 have significant hearing loss and many elderly people injure themselves from falls that may be related to balance problems and loss of inner ear cells, so I think that cane is a good suggestion.
