Wound Care Centers Can Help You Heal Faster, Feel Better Sooner
Many older adults find that simple cuts and bruises take much longer to heal than they did in the past. Even more problematic, some individuals have wounds that never heal completely. Compromised immune systems, decreased skin elasticity and less fat underlying the skin all contribute to increased wounds and slower healing time as we age, said Steven Bowers, DO, Network Medical Director, St. Luke’s Wound Management. Although it’s common for healing to take longer as we grow older, significantly slower-healing or non-healing wounds pose a serious threat to the health of the patient.
Reducing Your Risk of Falls
As we age, our risk of experiencing a serious fall increases. Each year, one in three adults suffer a fall, many of which result in serious injury, hospitalization, nursing home admission, or even death. Falls can happen due to changes that occur with normal aging such as stiff joints, muscle weakness, and slower reaction times. Falls can also be caused by medical conditions and/or the use of certain medications. Additionally, a high number of falls are the result of dangers found within the home.
