The Benefits of Home Health Care for Elderly Patients with Arthritis
According to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), arthritis is the most common cause of disability in the U.S, with 52.5 million adults estimated to have doctor-diagnosed arthritis. The 2013 statistics for the state of Georgia show roughly 1,814,000 adults with arthritis; and a whopping 843,000 of them report to being severely limited by the disease. Living with arthritis could present many difficulties with even the simplest day-to-day activities. Home care professionals can help elderly patients cope with the illness and better manage their condition.
