Be aware of the way pressure ulcers form

There are many risk factors of bedsores you should be familiar with if you have an elderly or aging loved one in a hospital or long-term care facility. Bedsores, also known as pressure ulcers or pressure sores, develop when there is prolonged pressure placed on the skin. For example, if your loved one sits in a wheelchair without moving for several hours, the pressure on the skin on the tailbone could result in bruising and ulcers from a lack of circulation.

2 accused in crash that resulted in 2 deaths

Imagine driving down the road. You're minding your own business, but that doesn't stop a crash from taking place. Before you can move out of the way, a person on the opposite side of the road attempts to pass too closely to your vehicle. He hits you head on, causing a serious accident.

Preventing dehydration makes the elderly healthier

When your loved one is in a nursing home or hospital, it's important that he or she is drinking enough fluids. If he or she is not, then the nurses or doctors there should be willing to use an IV to make sure that your loved one does not become dehydrated.
