The mission of the Arthritis Foundation is to improve lives through leadership in the prevention, control and cure of arthritis and related diseases.
The Arthritis Foundation ( www.arthritis.org) is committed to raising awareness and reducing the unacceptable impact of arthritis, which strikes one in every five adults and 300,000 children, and is the nation’s leading cause of disability. To conquer this painful, debilitating disease, we support education, research, advocacy and other vital programs and services.
There are so many elderly who have severe pain due to arthritis and could benefit from simple education about adaptive equipment to make it much easier to open up a can, open a jar. Also teaching elderly to space out things over some time so their joints dont get too over worked.
