Team Select Home Care
My grandmother has Alzheimer's and cannot be left alone at home. After trying to deal with this disease for the last 2 years, we finally figured out it would be cheaper to get in home care then for me to go home constantly. We called Team Select to find out more about some of the in-home care programs they provide. They we're very helpful with getting us into the right program. I feel it is a huge weight off my shoulders as well as my families to know that someone is at home with my grandmother. Making sure she is taking her meds, eating, and using the restroom. Thank you Team Select for helping out our family during this difficult time

They will not help you if you are low income. They are money hungry. UPDATE from 2015: It took several months but they did come through and cut our monthly charge by 75% Thank you.

BrightStar Care
Great staff. They handled my mother extremely. She needed a lot more care than the previous company could handle and Brightstar really came around when we needed it.
Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
