Hi, my grandma has rheumatoid arthritis and she has some problems to sweep and mop the floor. Does anybody knows a way to make it easier? I`m really worried about her.

    A Shark steam mop,the small one, and get the disposable pad!!

    It is so simple!

    Kind regards to both you and grandma,

    You don't say how old your grandma is or if you're from the UK

    If you live in the UK then you could contact your local adult services and get your gran some practice help with difficult tasks.

    You can also contact a Home Health Agency or your local Social Services

    if you live in the states.They can set up a worker for your grandma to do

    her house cleaning,paying bills and grocery shopping

    I heard recentoy of a website I think called "chickenshop" but cant quite remember, they do all sort of applicances and adaptations for handles etc.  There is a shop in Edinburgh also called Whistling Tortoise (crazy old name I know) who do all manner of helpful aids.  NRAS can put you in touch with the chickenshop website or whatever it is called.  THey were most helpful to me, I was looking for a cooler to travel with biologics on aircraft.
