Arthritis Care is our specialty

Help is Available All Day Every Day

Your father or mother may long to chase after their much-loved grandchildren, tend to their garden, or engage in a favorite hobby, but arthritis pain keeps them immobilized. The aches and pains caused by inflamed and swollen joints prevent active seniors all across the country from participating in their preferred daily activities to the fullest. Basic daily activities, including writing cooking, dressing, bathing and driving, become difficult. Arthritis pain is treatable through proper medication regulation and management, assistance by caregivers can provide an even greater quality of life. Professional caregivers, Nurse Aides and Home Health Aides, provided by Whittier In Home Care can help your loved one to not only cope with their arthritis pain, but to thrive and experience a greater quality of life.

Activity Equals Independence

Maintaining the independence of the client is of top priority to our Caregivers. Care providers work to involve and engage clients in specific physical activities, aimed at making living with arthritis more manageable. Caregivers also believe in maintaining the integrity and dignity of the patient they are caring for. Physical activities that are included in this active approach to arthritis care include:


  • Socializing: interaction with others is a helps in arthritis care by taking one's mind off the pain and lifting the spirit
  • Exercise: swimming, walking, Tai Chi, and other low-impact, moderate physical activities that are recommended by the Arthritis Foundation® to help minimize and manage arthritis symptoms
  • Pursuit of hobbies: focusing on and engaging in pleasurable activities
  • Assistance with household cleaning and chores, errands, and activities of daily living
  • Medication reminders
  • Transportation needs

Direct painful symptoms of arthritis such as swelling of the joints, will lessen with the assistance of a caregiver. With the assistance of a compassionate caregiver, unnecessary stress, over-exertion, fatigue, and anxiety can be eliminated, reducing the symptoms that worsen the pain. Senior or elderly individuals with arthritis can gain the ability to reclaim their life and bring their condition under through caregiver support.

Increasing Activity of Your Loved One
Seniors with arthritis are presented with the challenge of remaining active. An inability to remain active can result in poor health, leading to conditions such as frailty. Frailty can also be caused by the physiological changes and triggers of chronic diseases, such as arthritis. Exercise for seniors serves to slow natural decline, preventing fears associated with growing old, such as loss of independence, the inability to remain in one's own home and illness from coming true. The connection between possible illnesses associated with inactivity and the inability to remain active when one is affected by arthritis, stresses the ultimate importance of exercise for arthritis patients.

Whittier In Home Care has created many programs to help seniors stay physically active and mentally and emotionally engaged. The programs offered by our caregivers include activities that help seniors engage in lifestyle choices and activities they find enjoyable and that provide for their mind, body and soul. We serve the residents of Whittier, La Mirada, La Habra Heights, Santa Fe Springs, La Habra, Fullerton, Brea, Yorba Linda and other cities of Greater Los Angeles area.
