Best Gel Cushion For Pressure Ulcer

If you have aging parents or if you are a caregiver for an elderly or bed-bound person, you probably know about pressure ulcers.

These can be hard to treat, hard to get rid of, and very painful. The key to healing them and stopping more from appearing is to take the pressure off of the area, but this is not always something that can be done. There are times when a person must lie a certain way, in a specific position, and there are also individuals who simply cannot turn over by themselves.

Anyone like this is vulnerable to getting pressure ulcers, and the people who take care of them can get very concerned about the health and comfort of their patients when these ulcers appear. Ulcers can lead to infections, and these can be highly detrimental to a patient who is already in a weakened state.

For people who suffer with different kinds of pressure ulcers, Convo-Gel Ulcer Prevention Cushions are the way to go for both healing and comfort. These cushions come in four sizes: 16X16X3, 18X16X3, 20X16X3, and 20X18X3. Even the smallest one, at 16 inches square, is still a good size for most people and most pressure ulcers.

The 20 by 18 inch size can accommodate almost anyone. This allows someone who is smaller to get an ulcer prevention cushion that fits well while still offering products for larger people. At less than $65 per cushion they are an economical way to provide comfort and to allow an ulcer to heal more quickly through gel cushions for pressure sores.

Taking Care Of Elderly Parents In Different Ways

There are more options for taking care of the elderly than ever before, but sometimes that makes the decisions even harder.

When I had to first start thinking about taking care of elderly parents, I couldn't figure out what to do. Part of me wanted to go more traditional and keep my parents in the house. I figured that I could take some time off work and my wife could do the same, and between us we could take care of our parents as they grew older.

Then again, I did value my freedom, so I contemplated some other options on how to take care of the elderly. On the other extreme was sending my parents for nursing home care, something which definitely had its appeal.

I love my parents, but I do not want them to constantly be my responsibility. Sending them to a place where they can get professional quality care for the elderly seemed like a good idea to me.
