Osteoarthritis

Have you or any of your loved ones been diagnosed with arthritis or osteoarthritis? If so, you should know that, in most cases, people with osteoarthritis can lead full, active lives by properly managing the condition. In fact, osteoarthritis is one of the most frequent causes of physical disability among adults.

  • More than 20 million people in the United States have the disease.
  • By 2030, 20 percent of Americans—about 70 million people—will have passed their 65th birthday and will be at risk for osteoarthritis.
  • More than half of the population age 65 or older would show x-ray evidence of osteoarthritis in at least one joint.

Simple, daily tasks can aggravate the condition and lead to frustration, weariness and depression. Right at Home has years of experience working with those suffering from osteoarthritis and has developed special elderly care services to help return some independence and comfort.

By alleviating some of the more tiring and mobility-oriented tasks, people with osteoarthritis can return to a fairly normal lifestyle. Right at Home’s caregivers provide these valuable elder care services including:

  • Meal Preparation
  • Light Housekeeping
  • Errand Services
  • Grocery Shopping
  • Incidental Shopping
  • Laundry & Linen Washing
  • Clothes Shopping
  • Recreational Activities

Osteoarthritis Information and Resources

  • More than 22 million people in the U.S. and U.K. have some form of osteoarthritis.
