The pain and fatigue arising from Osteo and Rheumatoid arthritis can lead to joint stiffness and reduced mobility. This can impact on the person’s ability to move around freely and carry out essential day to day tasks such as cooking, dressing and washing. Assisted Lives has experience supporting people with arthritis to be as self-caring and independent as possible. Arthritis is a fluctuating condition and we know you will have good days and bad days. We will tailor our support around this. We can help with your medication, we understand the importance of gentle flexion exercises and carrying out tasks in a way that promotes maximum joint protection.
