Can anyone recommend a good make of slippers with a really safe non-slip sole for my 94 year old mum who has had a fall recently?

Try this site unless your mum has very narrow feet; they are rather expensive but sturdy with good soles, although I have not tried the slippers they look supportive and non-slip.

We get these for my mother in law, aged 89. She is in care and has dementia. Her balance and mobility is still reasonable. The double velcro fastening ensure a snug and comfortable fit.
