An Introduction to Arthritis
Arthritis refers to an inflammation of the joints. There are over 100 types of arthritis, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and gout. Many people may think of arthritis as a disease of the elderly, but this is not true. While it is more common among older adults, arthritis can also develop in children, youth, and younger adults.
Arthritis Is among the Top 5 Causes of Disability in Singapore
Arthritis is the most common joint disease in the world. Individuals with arthritis often experience joint pain or stiffness, a limited range of movement, and swelling and redness. The most commonly affected joints are in the hands, spine, knees and hips.
Managing Arthritis at Home
While no cure is available for arthritis currently, there are several things we can do to manage its symptoms and reduce the impact it has on our lives.
Besides medication and surgery, maintaining a healthy weight, adopting a healthy diet and exercising regularly can help to reduce inflammation and keep joints flexible. A physiotherapist can advise you on the exercises that are most suited for you to keep fit and healthy while reducing the stress on your joints.

What our customers say
Right from the start from signing up for an account, to making a booking on the app, to the confirmation of a Care Asst and to the whole visit concluding, its all a seamless and worry free process. Loved this service and would recommend it to anyone who requires the extra pair of hands and legs
Have been using this for a year to help my grandfather who frequently gets aspiration pneumonia and has difficulty leaving the house. The app is so easy to use, and the cherry on top is the wonderful service behind the app. Had some difficulty finding a doctor recently and Hakim called me back personally twice to ensure a doctor was found. Thank you so much, cannot recommend this app more.
Very responsive app, with options to chat with caregiver, review reports and contact support team for assistance.
My mum’s helper was hospitalised suddenly and I needed urgent help to take care of my mum who has advanced dementia. Homage was able able to find caregivers for my mum within a very short notice. The caregivers possessed the skill sets that I had requested and were of great help to me in my time of need. Thank you Homage!
Homage CP render their professional service to my dad who is a dialysis patient. CP assigned to wheel my dad to & fro from Dialysis Center within 300m walking distance. They are capable to load & unload my dad from wheelchair independently. They are friendly too. I'm looking forward to their next visit.
Had a good experience with Homage's teleconsultation. The doctor is qualified, friendly and guided me on examination. She also explained my symptoms to me in detail, which is useful. The report provided has detailed information, and medicine was delivered to me on the same day even though my appointment was in the evening.
Response from Homage is fast. And the physiotherapist assigned is professional in assessing and guiding my mom in her session.
