4 Things that Can Help Your Loved One Have a Great Day Even with Arthritis

Elderly Care in Stratford, CT

Elderly Care in Stratford CTWhen your loved one has arthritis, some days are going to be better than others. But there are some things that you and her elderly care providers can do that can help to make her days much easier for her right from the start.

Hit the Ground Slowly in the Morning

Your loved one might be used to a fast-paced life in which she hopped out of bed every morning, but with arthritis, that isn't always a great idea. Instead, starting each day a little more slowly helps her to ease her body into being active for the day. Try setting out clothing the night before and doing other things to make the morning run smoothly, such as setting up the coffee pot the night before. Each little step helps to make it easier to slowly get going.

Start Each Day with Positivity

Positivity helps you and your loved one get much farther than negativity, and this is true when dealing with arthritis pain, too. If your loved one can establish a ritual in the morning that helps her to start out her day with positive thoughts, she may find that helps her to start every day on the right foot.

Set a Reasonable Pace for Your Day

Loved ones who are still very active in their community may find that retirement offers them the time to get involved in all of the different activities and causes that they've wanted to do for years. The problem with this is that it can leave your loved one running from one activity to another. By slowing down her active life even a little bit, your loved one can have a more reasonable pace for her day and hopefully avoid an arthritis flare-up.

Allow Yourself time to Decompress

If your loved one keeps her schedule so packed during the day that she doesn't have time to just relax and decompress, that can take a toll on her. Help her to figure out ways to build relaxation into her day so that she has the time that she needs to decompress. Your loved one may even find that she enjoys activities such as meditating or even just reading for an hour or so.

Your loved one's arthritis pain doesn't have to keep her down. Try some of these tips to make each day a good one for her.
