african grey falling off perch.

My african grey occasionally falls off her perch. She is about 22yrs old. i took her to the vet, they gave her a physical and blood test. they said, she was fine other than her calcium was low. probably due to not enough sunlight. so i have been giving her calcium suppliments(liquid). this worked OK.
I just ordered a Vita-Lite 20 watt Full Spectrum Bulb, i hope this works. Also, i placed a oven rack 3" below her perch so she does not knock her self out when she falls(which she has done) this seems to work pretty good. Am i missing something or is this normal?
