Where can I buy items to help me with my rheumatoid arthritis?

ANSWER

Many items to assist you with your rheumatoid arthritis are available at full-service pharmacies and surgical supply stores. The Arthritis Foundation is also a great source. If you can't install something yourself, the store can often arrange it. Or check with your local hardware store to see if they can recommend someone to do it for you.
