Helpline: Arthritis - Degenerative Community

Online Arthritis Community for Family Caregivers
Degenerative arthritis, which is not the same as rheumatoid arthritis, is the most common type of arthritis. It occurs when the cartilage of the joints experience inflammation and then breakdown before finally fading. It affects the hands, spine, feet, knee, and hip joints, creating persistent pain and mobility issues. Unfortunately, there is no cure for arthritis.

As a caregiver for a person who has degenerative arthritis, you need the right information to extend better care to a loved one. ExtendaTouch is an online arthritis helpline where you can break down barriers and get help from people sharing your experience and available to support you.

Degenerative Arthritis Caregiving: Getting the Right Knowledge
Degenerative arthritis caregivers often experience overwhelming emotions and feel exhausted. It is comforting to receive some emotional support at such times. You can meet many real people with similar experiences on our online arthritis helpline. Our community members can provide you information and ideas about caring for a person with degenerative arthritis.

Our fellow caregivers will tell you stories about how they cared for people with arthritis and what coping strategies they used. You will get not only ideas and valuable information on our support group but also moral support and advice for yourself as a family caregiver.

Caring for People With Degenerative Arthritis
ExtendaTouch’s arthritis community of family caregivers has faith to see positive changes in the lives of every caregiver and people living with arthritis. Everyone here knows that caring for someone with this health problem is a challenging but rewarding experience.

My back has been an issue for years, and after back surgery, my doctor told me the only thing that was helping were the core exercises at the gym. What a lifesaver! I’d like to learn more about degenerative arthritis since I'm getting older.
