Have aids and adaptations helped you?

The charity Versus Arthritis (Arthritis Care) are looking for people to take part in their Room to Manoeuvre campaign.

  • Do you live with arthritis, or another musculoskeletal condition?
  • Do you use any aids and adaptations to help you at home? Aids can include shoe horns, two-handled saucepans or electric tin openers, whereas adaptations are things like widened doorways, ramps, lever taps and wet rooms.

Your responses will help Versus Arthritis understand the difference that aids and adaptations can make to people with arthritis, and give them strong evidence which will be used to persuade the Government to do everything it can to support people to access the aids and adaptations they need.

If you don’t use any aids or adaptations at the moment, they would still be very interested to hear about why this is.

People with arthritis across the UK can respond to this survey, and the answers you provide will be treated in confidence. The survey should take around between 5 and 10 minutes to complete depending on your experience, and you can skip sections when you have nothing to share.

Note: Shropshire Disability Network have reviewed the survey and it is totally optional whether you give any personal details ie name, email, contact details.

The survey will be open until Sunday 3 March 2019

If you have questions before you take part, you can email our campaigns team on campaigns@versusarthritis.org
