Living Made Easier is a series of events that will show you how you CAN beat those daily obstacles created by arthritis and say Yes more than No – from cooking to gardening to daily living. You’ll get advice from local experts on how to reduce stress on your joints while maintaining the activities that you love.
In 2018, we will expand the series to include other topics and additional cities. This free, 90- minute interactive program will be facilitated by local experts. Hands on demos will be offered during each program. In addition, guests will hear from other people who have arthritis about their techniques and can share their own tips and tricks.
