The following information has come from the Area Co-Ordinator for Arthritis Action which offers hands-on, practical help for people with arthritis to improve their quality of life whilst living with the condition. Their services have been adapted to support people dealing with their arthritis in these difficult circumstances, including setting up a new online support group for Yorkshire.
Online Arthritis Action Groups
We are pleased to announce we will be running Arthritis Action Group meetings online via Zoom. Our next online group for Yorkshire will take place at 2pm on 6th August at 2pm..
These meetings will be an opportunity for people with arthritis to talk with others and share their tips on how to manage their arthritis symptoms, stay active and keep positive. Participants will need to contact us directly for the log in instructions for the meeting, and we have produced How To guides for those not familiar with using Zoom.
Many people living with a long-term health condition find it difficult to attend exercise classes. To help them, Arthritis Action recently launched a series of online chair based exercises developed with the aim of helping those with hip, knee or spinal Osteoarthritis more mobile and active.
