Generations at Elmwood Park offers an innovative, interdisciplinary approach to treat and heal chronic wounds.
What is Wound Care?
A chronic wound is one which heals very slowly, not at all, or is recurrent in nature. Non-healing wounds may be caused by a variety of different medical conditions that can delay or impede the healing process.
Types of slow- or non-healing wounds include:
- Surgical wounds
- Pressure ulcers (bedsores)
- Diabetic ulcers
- Venous/statis ulcers
- Traumatic wounds
- Arterial ulcers
- Wound flaps
- Ischemic ulcers
Who Should Participate in Wound Care?
Anyone with a persistent wound. Chronic and non-healing wounds can result from a number of factors such as diabetes, poor circulation, trauma, vascular disease, and immobility.
