I know this has probably been gone over countless times and I’ve read a lot of stuff in the forum using the search so I hope making a new post isn’t a problem(after all if everyone just searched and never posted the place would be quiet).
What are the best things that can make day to day life easier? My mum likes to be independent and do everything herself.. quite stubborn actually and won’t ask for help most of the time.
I’m looking for anything that I can buy that will help out even the simple tasks that people without arthritis take for granted.
She has both rheumatoid and osteoarthritis and is in a lot of pain as I’m sure a lot of you are well aware, she takes a lot of meds for it but she also has angina which I believe certain meds interact with each other so can’t take some of the arthritis stuff. Her hands and feet are quite bad. Her ankles and toes have been fused and also her knuckles in her hand. She’s tried lots of different footwear but does anyone have any recommendations( I think she gets a bit embarrassed by wearing some big bulky shoes).
If there’s anything I need to add I will do but any help and advice is much appreciated.
