Common Causes of Chronic Wounds

Chronic wounds refer to wounds that do not heal in just a span of four weeks or a few months. These wounds may have the possibility to never heal at all, or if they do, it would take much time for the waiting.

There can be many causes of a chronic wound. Here are four:

1. Pressure ulcers (better known as bedsores) repeatedly occurring at the same spots, restricting normal blood flow

2. Incisions (surgical cuts) that may become infected or take time to heal

3. Deep burns in the skin acquired from an accident

4. Diabetic wounds present in patients who are deeply hit by diabetes

3 Ways to Fight off Depression in Aging

Depression is common to occur in late adulthood. Oftentimes, they are diagnosed late because signs and symptoms do not appear obvious at first. But depression does not have to happen to every aging person out there. There are some who are able to prevent it. The following are some ways:

• Detect early signs

First off, you should learn what the early signs of depression are so you can arrest them immediately and prevent them from becoming worse. Ask help from a medical professional before it happens. 

• Prevent isolation

One of the factors that can aggravate depression is isolation. Isolation in aging is common due to varying factors like insecurities, sadness, and disappointments. When this happens, do not leave the patient's side. Be available as much as possible. Plan out daily activities properly and make sure they are engaging. Help and encourage patients to form new relationships with others and spend time with families and friends. 

• Offer counseling

Too often, depression just stems from one minor problem that has caused seniors to become sad for a long time. If you have noticed recurrent sadness, make sure to talk to a medical professional or a healthcare provider right away. These professionals can provide counseling to enlighten the patient’s situation and make them feel better.
