I created a website for Arthritis products. This site was inspired after having to search for a product for my aging mother. Fortunately, my mother’s arthritis is relative minor when compared to her peers. But as we age most of us will suffer some form of this debilitating disease. The strength we once had will diminish to some extent, making some mundane tasks just that much more challenging.
I had grown up watching my Grandmother suffer from arthritis all the way through to be confined to a wheelchair a few years before she passed. She suffered from her early 40s. Although, as a child I wasn’t really aware of her suffering, she was and forever will be simply Grandma. As an adult, I can only imagine the pain she must have endured for 30 something years.
Well back to my Mom. She was having problems with Mashed Potatoes; she just could no longer manually mash them. A simple task she had performed, like any other mother, literally thousands of times over the years. I went looking and found a solution. Then Mom took a trip to see her brother and sister in law. Turned out, her cousin was having the same problem, so Mom introduced her cousin to this gadget.
Since that time, Mom has needed a few other gadgets and I have been happy to help her out. She looked after me for a considerable number of years (and truth be told, she still does) so it is the very least I can do.
But, this exercise in sourcing some gadgets has made me think about our aging population. We now live longer than our forebears. Medical science is a wonderful thing. Occupational Therapists do a fine job but most of us will not get to see them until our problems have become severe. In the interim, we need some information that will make our life more comfortable and liveable.
I hope this site will be of help to those out there, like my Mom, who just want to find an easier way of doing the things they have always done… like mashing potatoes.
It is my sincere hope that we all get to enjoy our Golden Year
