Arthritis is an inflammation of one or more joints, causing pain and stiffness that can worsen with age. The most three common types of arthritis to affect seniors are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and gout. Given that these conditions damage the joints or cartilages, they cause serious mobility issues upon the elderly. This alone causes seniors to experience difficulty with carrying out their daily activities. They can get to a point where they cannot perform things like buttoning clothes, holding their toothbrush, house cleaning, cooking, or laundry. That’s where our compassionate caregivers come in to help with your loved one’s daily activities, prevent falls and encourage daily activity.
