Allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. More than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies each year.

“Allergies are an overreaction of the immune system to substances that generally do not affect other individuals,” according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “These substances, or allergens, can cause sneezing, coughing, and itching. Allergic reactions range from merely bothersome to life-threatening.” While allergies can generally not be prevented, allergic symptoms and reactions can be prevented.

January is National Glaucoma Awareness Month. Did you know that glaucoma is a leading cause of vision loss and blindness in the United States? Glaucoma is a group of eye conditions or diseases that damage the optic nerve, according to the Mayo Clinic. Glaucoma usually occurs when the fluid pressure inside the eyes slowly rises, therefore damaging the optic nerve, according to MedlinePlus. “This internal fluid normally drains out through a tissue called the trabecular meshwork at the angle where the iris and cornea meet,” according to Mayo Clinic. “When fluid is overproduced or the drainage system doesn't work properly, the fluid can't flow out at its normal rate and eye pressure increases.”

Arthritis means inflammation or swelling of one or more joints, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The term arthritis describes more than 100 conditions that affect the joints, tissues around the joint, and other connective tissues. Specific symptoms vary depending on the type of arthritis, but usually include joint pain and stiffness, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

If your senior parent suffers with joint pain and stiffness, it’s possible that they suffer with arthritis. If your senior parent is struggling with pain and immobility, make an appointment with their doctor to determine if arthritis is the cause of discomfort. Common types of arthritis include osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, both of which are more common in people ages 50 and older.

Osteoarthritis is sometimes called degenerative joint disease or “wear and tear” arthritis. It most frequently occurs in the hands, hips, and knees. Signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis include:

  • Pain or aching
  • Stiffness
  • Decreased range of motion
  • Swelling

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune and inflammatory disease, which means that the immune system attacks healthy cells in the body, causing inflammation (painful swelling) in the affected parts of the body, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Rheumatoid arthritis commonly affects joints in the hands, wrists, and knees. Signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis include:

  • Pain or aching in more than one joint
  • Stiffness in more than one joint
  • Tenderness and swelling in more than one joint
  • The same symptoms on both sides of the body (such as in both hands or both knees)
  • Weight loss
  • Fever
  • Fatigue, tiredness, or weakness

Certain factors have been shown to be associated with a greater risk of arthritis, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Risk factors include:

  • The risk of developing most types of arthritis increases with age.
  • Most types of arthritis are more common in women; 52 percent of all adults with arthritis are women.
  • Specific genes are associated with a higher risk of certain types of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Obesity. Excess weight can contribute to both the onset and progression of knee osteoarthritis.
  • Joint injuries. Damage to a joint can contribute to the development of osteoarthritis in that joint.
  • Infection. Many microbial agents can infect joints and potentially cause the development of various forms of arthritis.

If your senior parent has arthritis, participating in joint-friendly physical activity can improve their arthritis pain, function, mood, and quality of life. If you fear that your senior parent is immobile, call Synergy HomeCare Corona, Riverside, or Anaheim Hills. Our home health caregivers can help monitor the health of your senior parent and encourage light exercise to help your aging parent gain greater mobility, quality of life, and independence. Synergy HomeCare of Corona, Riverside, and Anaheim Hills in-home caregivers can accompany your family member on walks and encourage regular light exercise. Our home health caregivers can encourage S.M.A.R.T. exercise tactics for your senior parent suffering with arthritis, keeping the following in mind:

 

  • Start low, go slow.
  • Modify activity when arthritis symptoms increase.
  • Activities should be joint friendly.
  • Recognize safe places and ways to be active.
  • Talk to your senior parent’s health professional.

 

Synergy HomeCare Corona, Riverside, and Anaheim Hills home health caregivers can encourage and monitor low-impact (such as walking or gardening), muscle strengthening (such as lifting 3-5 pound weights) and flexibility (such as stretching and Tai Chi) exercises. Call Synergy HomeCare Corona, Riverside, or Anaheim Hills today if your senior parent suffers with arthritis and struggles with mobility.
