Because Time Doesn't Heal All Wounds
A wound that won't heal needs more than just another dressing. It needs the experience of a multidisciplinary wound care team, like the one at United Home Care!
The primary goal of United Home Care is to develop a management strategy that will heal the wound in the shortest amount of time while preventing infection. Patients who have chronic non-healing wounds often experience a marked reduction in quality of life, including pain, declining mobility and fears about possible amputation.
For the patient, as well as the physician, treating a wound that won’t heal can be frustrating, expensive, and time consuming. United Home Care offers patients with chronic wounds a comprehensive treatment program that helps them regain mobility and independence.
United Home Care has a wound care team that offers services for patients being treated for the following conditions:
- Diabetic ulcers
- Chronic leg ulcers
- Pressure ulcers
- Arterial ulcers
In addition to providing treatment for patients with chronic wounds, United Home Care's wound care program, inTOUCH, also treats people with:
