People with arthritis may develop some of the limitations discussed below, but seldom develop all of them. Also, the degree of limitation will vary among individuals. Be aware that not all people with arthritis will need accommodations to perform their jobs and many others may only need a few accommodations. The following is only a sample of the possibilities available. Numerous other accommodation solutions may exist. This comprehensive online resource for employers provides several accomodation ideas split in two groups: by "limitation" and by "work related function". In addition you will find case studies describing situations and solutions.
