Get Help from ExtendaTouch’s Rheumatoid Arthritis Helpline
Seeing a loved one who has rheumatoid arthritis can be stressful. Caregiving for people having this disease is a noble and fulfilling job. At the same time, it is a big responsibility that can bring significant stressors. So, what is the solution? Getting help from support groups can be a huge relief.

Use our rheumatoid arthritis helpline to get online support from our network of unpaid family caregivers. You can ask questions, get valuable information and ideas, and even share your experience. Do not feel guilty if you are doing less. Just connect with us, and you’ll be a better caregiver.

What is Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA)
Being informed is the first thing you need to provide better care for someone with rheumatoid arthritis RA, which is caused by an autoimmune disorder. A faulty immune system attacks the joints by mistaking them for foreign agents. The symptoms include joint pain and inflammation. People with RA can’t walk and do routine activities without support.

Our rheumatoid arthritis network members can give you free information and advice that will help you understand the disease and its symptoms. They can even share with you coping and relief methods that you can use to reduce the discomforts for people with rheumatoid arthritis, hence improving their daily lives.

Caregiving for People Living With Rheumatoid Arthritis
Caregiver knowledge plays a crucial role in helping people having AR. It falls to the caregiver to expand their understanding of the disease to provide better support. And as a caregiver, you may feel drained and stressed out because caregiving for someone living with arthritis is not a small responsibility.

Reach out to ExtendaTouch’s online rheumatoid arthritis helpline to know more about the disease, refine your caring strategies, and get ideas and emotional support.
