Can you please recommend and gadgets/tools you find helpful for arthritic hands? I now drop everything, cannot open anything or cut anything. Thankyou.

I was referred to the OT dept at my local hospital, where I was given certain gadjets, including blue silicone sheets for gripping jars, a walking stick with an ergonomic handle and a litter picker, to name but a few.

OP is there any way you can get a referral? They also are able to direct you to sites, where you can find reasonably priced gadjets.

I meant to say, I also have a Ninja chopper for cutting veg.

We bought DS1 Bertha which he loves.

I've got one, usually use it for chopping onions.
It's very good.

Have a look at this site - it has specialist aids for spreading bread, easy handle knives, kettle stands etc. Hope it helps
