Arthritis Tips

By Ryan Mackey

(Page 2 of 2)
  • Use safety rails in the bathroom and along stairways so the loved one can maintain their balance and still be provided with reassuring support.

  • If possible, anytime large items are used, it may be easier to condense the item such as soap or soda into a smaller, lighter bottle that they can lift easier.

  • In the kitchen, use lightweight dishware and cups with handles when they are eating.

  • Do not be afraid to attend arthritis support groups that can help caregivers adjust emotionally and better understand the condition.
