When you or a loved one is struggling with chronic wounds, the last thing you want to do is travel to a medical facility for wound care. Traveling with painful chronic wounds can be tiring and impact the patient’s quality of life. At-home wound care services can provide a comfortable and expert option for patients requiring specialized wound care while remaining in the comfort of their own space.
At-home wound care services offer a comfortable and comprehensive option for chronic wound patients and their families. What can you expect from at-home wound care services?
Wound Care Patient and Caregiver Support and Education
Personic Health’s at-home wound care services provide valuable wound-care education and support to patients and their caregivers, helping patients recognize complications, manage pain, and develop an effective care plan that meets their needs. We also offer care coordination and staff education for residential facilities, ensuring our patients and their caregivers have the information they need to be confidently involved in their wound care. Each patient will have an expert wound care support team overseeing their treatment, including an oversight physician, patient-care coordinator, and medical assistant.
Wound Assessment, Evaluation, and Monitoring
During an at-home wound care visit, a wound care specialist will visit your home to assess the wound’s type, location, size, potential complications, and underlying causes, creating a customized wound-care plan from the comfort of the patient’s home. Patients who choose at-home wound care will also receive continuous monitoring and assessments of their wound’s progress.
Unlike the unpredictable scheduling and travel issues that can arise with in-office appointments and cause a delay in care, patients with at-home wound care will receive regular, frequent assessments of their wound so their treatment team can adjust their care plan as needed.
Dressing Changes, Debridement, and Wound Cleaning
A primary component of wound care is dressing changes and cleaning. You can expect an at-home wound care specialist to assist with dressing changes and cleaning. At-home wound care services help prevent the spread of infection by changing soiled dressings, educating patients and caregivers about warning signs, and helping them take precautions against infection.
Peace of Mind
With mobile wound care services, patients and their caregivers eliminate the need to coordinate travel for treatment appointments, eliminating one of the biggest hurdles wound care patients face in coordinating transportation to and from their appointments. Coordinating travel for wound care patients can cause a delay in care and increase their risk of infection. At-home wound care offers wound care to patients and their families in a comfortable environment without worrying about coordinating transportation or managing long, uncomfortable waiting times in a busy waiting room.
