Bridges worked with Glover on balance and ways to prevent from falling. She taught her to back her legs all the way to the chair before sitting down. Before, Glover would flop down because she felt so unstable. Glover has also begun tai chi and started taking water aerobics at the gym.

Glover said she feels stronger and her balance has improved. It also is easier to move around the house.

"I can go faster," she said with a smile, while walking up the steps recently, holding both banisters."I do everything better."
