Not home made, but on topic I think. My mother is 90 years old and pretty infirm, although not bad for her age. I was at a thrift store a few years ago and ran across some ski poles. Not knowing if it was a good idea or not, I got them and had her try them out for size. She uses one at a time, keeps one by the front door and one by the back door and walks with it out in her yard. Maybe not for everyone but works well for her and they don't weigh hardly anything.
