Suggestions for when my mother-in-law wants to walk and read a book at the same time? I'm afraid she will trip over something. And I don't want to keep telling her to "sit down while you're reading."

Would an audio book work for her? She could listen and walk!

Has she ALWAYS walked and read? I can’t imagine that I could even manage that now! Is there something else she’s trying to accomplish while reading, like exercise? I don’t even think a treadmill would be safe if she has dementia. Is her chair not comfortable enough? I want to know why she’s feeling like she has to walk and read simultaneously.
