Whether you’re a spouse, a co-worker, a caregiver, a parent or a friend, trying to understand arthritis is difficult when you don’t have it. Our advice?
Educate yourself – read all the information you can about arthritis.
Ask questions – having arthritis doesn’t mean a person can’t explain how they feel.
Listen, if you’re gonna ask, you’ve gotta listen too. Be patient and and really try to understand where the other person is coming from.
Be flexible, be ready for plans and appointments to change in an instant. There?s no way of telling a bad day from a good one until it?s here.
