Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that causes joint pain and swelling, making even everyday tasks difficult and painful. BrightStar Care in Boca Raton understands the challenges of daily living with rheumatoid arthritis, and we offer in-home care services to help you live as independently and comfortably as possible.
Unlike other forms of arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis starts when the body’s own immune system attacks the lining that surrounds joints. Symptoms include joint pain, swelling and stiffness. It’s important to seek medical attention as soon as these symptoms appear, because early diagnosis means treatment can begin sooner rather than later.
Once you understand the source of your discomfort, consider home care from BrightStar Care. Our companion care services ensure help with daily tasks that may have become too difficult to accomplish. Home support includes help with household chores or laundry assistance – even transportation services for groceries, doctor’s appointments or visits with friends. A home companion also ensures a balanced diet, adequate rest and light exercise, as you are able.
Most importantly, a home caregiver ensures your safety, constantly monitoring the home for hazards that might cause a fall or injury (items such protruding electrical cords or wet tile).
Everyone is different. BrightStar Care will assess your home care needs and develop a plan of care just for you. We want to ensure your comfort and safety where you need it most – at home.
