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 Concern Amongst Malaysians

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

Help during the pandemic

The team has been sublime to work with albeit having to temporarily halt engaging them for care services due to the pandemic situation now in Malaysia. All teething issues in the initial phase of engagement were swiftly addressed and satisfactorily so. Special shoutout to Shirley from Homage who has been responding promptly to all my queries and requests (and went far and beyond my expectations with her actions in all counts).

Wong Voon Bing
Highly recommended care when I'm away

My father had a fall recently and sustained a hip fracture. Living overseas and not being able to travel back home to assist with recovery was very worrying. A friend recommended Homage to help with his nursing care. They are prompt in replying to messages. The care provided was excellent and highly professional. We have been very pleased with the service. There are times when we had to change the appointment time and they obliged and looked into our needs.

Anisa Aisha
Positive experience

Our experience has been very positive. So far, we have used their Care Pros perhaps 10 times (for checking in on mum) and she has been nothing short of kind and supportive. The coordinator Bel has also been a great help since day one. I find the price to be reasonable. Love the reporting feature on their app. You could see what has been done during the visit. It’s worth trying out.

Adelaine Yeo
My gratitude and appreciation

My 85-year-old mother, who underwent post-ventral incisional hernia surgery in January 2019 had CPs from Homage, all professionally trained, from leading Malaysian hospitals. The CPs nursed my mother with diligence, and compassion; providing invaluable tips on elderly caregiving to family members. My gratitude and appreciation to Team Homage.

Azwan Shahuddin
Definitely one of the best!

I had positive experiences with Homage so far. They are flexible, affordable, and professional. The coordinator from Homage has been very helpful and accommodating to my request since day one. Caregivers assigned to take care of my grandmother are punctual, professionally trained and attentive. Hope they will continue to serve well.

Kamilah Barvin
Comprehensive physiotherapy program

Homage has helped us a lot in assisting the recovery of our beloved father. They provide us with a comprehensive explanation regarding the physiotherapy program. The therapist they sent is highly qualified, courteous, passionate, and gave outstanding service. And above all, the charges are fair and affordable.

Farizal Anam
Guidance for my domestic helper

Thank you Homage for your assistance after my mom was discharged from the hospital due to dengue fever. Mom regained her confidence to take her first shower after discharge with the help of Homage's caregiver, something my domestic helper will not be able to do. Also to guide my domestic helper to handle her in a more hygienic way. My maid learned the proper method and able to give better care to mom now. Highly recommend it to people who looking for professional care services to manage family members who need help.

Jenny Lim
Hassle-free swab test

Sofia Mustaffa
Overall a good team work

I want to thank Homage for their excellent service especially Ms. Ginger for her brilliant communication and customer service and for making the necessary arrangements. She does a good follow-up before and after the physio, also accurate feed-back. We appreciate Ms. Shu for her excellent physio service which made my mother gain confidence that she can walk again. Ms. Shu is very patient, hard-working, and committed to seeing my mum will be completely restored and healed. Thank you.
