Arthritis Care - Merton, Morden and Sutton Branch

Living with and coping with arthritis

Arthritis Care

Arthritis is not a life sentence, but it can be life changing. Simple daily tasks can become difficult and painful, while managing family life and juggling work can be exhausting. Adjusting isn't always easy. But there are many people, services, products and benefits that can help. Arthritis Care was set up so that people with arthritis can meet up and support each other. A number of beneficial services are provided by the volunteers who run the group, including:
• a social network
• support through sharing experiences
• provision of information through Arthritis Care publications and guest speakers

The Merton, Morden and Sutton Branch meet on the second Saturday of each month from 3pm - 5pm
