Whenever I can, I encourage seniors with arthritis to do for themselves – for independence and to combat stiffness. There are many devices that (with practice) can help them, too. Of course, for mobility, walkers are quite common. For helping with grasp, foam tubes can help arthritic hands grasp silverware, toothbrushes and pens. And there are simple devices to help those who cannot bend well to put on their hosiery, socks and shoes.
