What do I need to know about caring for someone with psoriatic arthritis?

If someone you know has psoriatic arthritis, you should educate yourself about the condition so that you can help your loved one understand their treatment options, prognosis, and more. Also, help your loved one maintain a healthy lifestyle by encouraging weight loss, if necessary, regular exercise, and stress management. In severe cases, you may also need to help them get around or perform tasks because they may not be able to walk or use their hands effectively due to joint stiffness or damage.
