Ok. Any injuries or bone or joint issues?
Does he have any chronic medical conditions that are being treated currently?
OK. Then He needs to be seen by a general physician and worked up.
Finally, you must realize that he is 87 years old
can we engage physio therapist.
and that he might not be able to be very active
any medication for him
That is a fine idea. But before you do that, take him to a general doctor and make sure his blood work and joints are all normal
Then a physical therapist is a fine idea
No, there is no medication that you can give in this instance until we know what is going on
