Coordinating Care for Elderly Onset Rheumatoid Arthritis (EORA)

Arthritis is one of the most common diseases in this country. For some, it can be temporary, but for many its is a chronic, and sometimes, debilitating disease. Arthritis can attack joints in almost any part of the body, at any age. Some forms of arthritis cause change you can see and feel such as pain, swelling, warmth and redness in your joints. Other types cause less troublesome symptoms but slowly damage your joints. Rheumatoid arthritis(RA) is a systemic, inflammatory disorder affecting primarily women with a peak incidence between 30 and 50 years of age and an average age of onset of 55 years. 
 
Elderly Onset Rheumatoid Arthritis (EORA), also called Late-Onset Rheumatoid Arthritis (LORA), is the development of RA in persons older than 60 years. Approximately one-third of patients with RA acquire the disease at the age of 60, and the prevalence increases with advancing age. In fact, half of all people age 65 and older have RA and many are having a difficult time managing the disease. Older people most often have osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or gout.
