Arthritis is an inflammatory disease that affects the joints and is typically associated with older adults over age 65. However, there is another type of arthritis that affects about 300,000 children in the United States, and it’s called juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA). Caused by what researchers believe to be an autoimmune attack, JRA causes joint pain, recurrent fever, limping, swollen joints, and reduced range of motion, among other symptoms. The duration of JRA varies from child to child. Some have it for a few months, a few years, and sometimes a whole lifetime. A-1 Home Care in Burbank offers live-in and live-out care for families who have children with JRA. Our certified nurse aides can help your child improve in school and perform other tasks to reduce or prevent joint damage.
24-Hour Hour Arthritis Care for Children
It’s important for your child to get routine check-ups if you detect early signs of arthritic symptoms. Early detection improves the chance of remission, but if it’s left untreated until the advanced stages, remission may be slim to impossible. Advanced symptoms of JRA include joint destruction, uneven limbs, swelling around the heart, and stunted growth. If you or your spouse cannot take time off from work, a certified home health aide can take your child to the doctor’s for regular check-ups to ensure good health. Our caregivers are trustworthy, knowledgeable and reliable; A-1 Home Care in Burbank thoroughly screens each live-in and live-out caregiver and investigates their criminal background, sex offender check, and DMV records.
