Chronic wounds aren’t just painful, they also keep us from enjoying the people, places and activities we love. The Wound Care program at Walnut Place restores quality of life for patients suffering from wounds caused by diabetes, poor circulation and many other health problems.
Sometimes wounds simply don’t heal as quickly as we hope they will. For seniors, this can be especially troublesome because open wounds increase their risk of infection. Not only that, chronic wounds can even lead to re-admittance to the hospital if not properly cared for. At Walnut Place, we offer a personalized, evidence-based approach to treating difficult-to-heal wounds of all types.
At Walnut Place, we understand that every wound is unique. What works for one person may not be an effective treatment for another. This is why we are proud to offer an individualized approach to wound care that not only considers the needs of the patient, but also adapts based on the progression of the healing process.
New wound care patients at Walnut Place can expect advanced, person-centered care utilizing a variety of proven techniques and the latest treatment therapies. Some of the treatments we offer include:
Excessive pain can impede the healing process and make it more difficult for patients to recover. This is why we always assess our patients’ level of pain and offer a variety of effective pain management treatments. Based on your unique needs, we may recommend the following products or therapies to help you heal more comfortably:
For patients returning home after receiving wound care treatment at Walnut Place, our team provides detailed instructions for how to continue caring for the wound. We believe this is critically important because it can take up to two years for a wound to heal completely – despite what it looks like on the surface. We also make sure to help our patients schedule a follow-up appointment with their physician to help ensure the wound continues healing as it should.
If you or someone you love needs help with difficult-to-heal wounds, the wound care treatment program at Walnut Place offers state-of-the-art therapies and techniques to get you back to the things you love.
