10 Ways to Deal With Arthritis in Your Daily Routine
In the kitchen
1. Open up: If you have arthritis in your hands, opening a jar presents a challenge. For mild cases, a rubber jar-opening grip helps by adding traction. If that doesn’t do the trick, consider buying a specialized opener for jars, cans and other containers.
2. Get a grip: If you love to cook, pots and pans with soft grips and longer handles may ease the process. Likewise, if you have trouble handling silverware, adaptive utensils with thicker handles make it easier to enjoy your home-cooked meals.
