What is Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes pain, swelling and stiffness in joints.

There are 450,000 people living with rheumatoid arthritis in the UK making it the most common type of inflammatory arthritis. The condition can start at any age but incidence is greatest amongst people in their 70s. The disease is twice as likely to occur in women than in men. 

The most common symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis are pain and stiffness. Many people will also experience fatigue due to inflammation or anaemia. Some people may experience flu-like symptoms and a fever but this is less common. People with rheumatoid arthritis are also more likely to experience depression or feelings of low mood. There is no cure for the condition but there are treatments to slow the progression of the disease and to relieve symptoms.

The Benefits of Rheumatoid Arthritis Home Care

Our rheumatoid arthritis care service is designed to help your loved one to live independently in their own home. We’ll organise a free consultation with you and your loved one to understand their unique needs so we can create a bespoke care plan that outlines how we will support them. We often find people with rheumatoid arthritis request support with some or all of the following activities:

  • Assistance with housework and laundry
  • Support cooking nutritious meals
  • Help getting out of the house to attend medical appointments
  • Support attending social events
  • Personal care

More reasons to choose Tiggo Care

Our Care packages are bespoke

At Tiggo Care we understand how precious your loved one is to you and how unique they are. We also appreciate how overwhelming it can be to research and source the most suitable type of care.

We fundamentally believe that there is no ‘one size fits all’ care package and like to work with you and your loved one to understand your specific requirements. We’ll then create a tailored care package and match your relative with their ideal carer.

We're fully regulated

Unlike some other care providers, we are fully regulated by the Care Quality Commission. This means we are regularly inspected, rated and audited to ensure we are a safe, effective, caring, responsive and well led organisation, committed to delivering the best possible care.

We’re also proud members of the Homecare Association, the U.K’s membership body for home care providers, which holds organisations to a high set of standards and requests them to abide by a strict code of practice

Our carers are fully vetted & trained

At Tiggo Care, all of our carers undergo a rigorous recruitment and induction process. They are fully vetted and background checked, with all references followed up. Our carers undertake their training on the best eLearning system currently available within the UK care market, ensuring they are well placed to deliver the best possible service. Specialist training courses such as moving and handling, medications and basic life support are also completed by our carers face to face, as we feel these courses are more effective when delivered in person.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is rheumatoid arthritis a progressive condition?

In the absence of treatment rheumatoid arthritis is a progressive condition. However, for some people treatment will completely stop the progression of the disease and in some cases, the condition can go into remission.

Can people with rheumatoid arthritis live independently?

Rheumatoid arthritis affects people differently but in almost all cases people can live at home independently. Some people with more severe symptoms might require some additional help to live independently with things like shopping, cooking, and general domestic chores.

What can you do to help someone with rheumatoid arthritis?

There are lots of things you can do to help someone with rheumatoid arthritis from providing emotional support by listening to their concerns to extra help with activities around the house. It’s important to ask how the person wants to be supported rather than making assumptions about their needs.

Do people with rheumatoid arthritis need to move into care?

It is very rare that a person needs to move into residential care because of the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis. However, there are some rare cases where rheumatoid arthritis has greatly reduced a person’s mobility and they’ve required 24/7 care. In those cases a person may choose to receive care at home or in a residential setting.
