Arthritis is a word used to describe more than 100 different diseases and conditions affecting joints, the tissues that surround joints, and other connective tissue. The locations, types, and severity of symptoms can vary depending on the specific type of arthritis. The two most common forms of arthritis are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Arthritis causes pain which makes it difficult for people to perform everyday tasks. No matter what type of arthritis you are suffering with, a trained caregiver from Dimi Nursing can help improve the quality of your life. As the disease progresses, it becomes increasingly difficult to manage daily activities. DiMi caregivers will assist with the daily activities that have become problematic.
