Happier and free of pain
Wheelchair nursing home

At a visit with the client in a nursing home, our Elder Care Coordinator learned that the nursing home resident had a chronic wound on her tailbone due to sitting long hours in a wheelchair.  Our Elder Care Coordinator immediately spoke with the nursing staff, and suggested the facility try a “Roho Cushion” to relieve the pressure on her tailbone. Our ECC also offered additional wound care techniques including increasing her protein intake to help speed healing of the wound. Within a few weeks, the pressure sores had cleared up and our client felt happier and free of pain from the wound.
