Homewatch Caregivers
Margie Lannon and her team at Homewatch CareGivers provided 6 months of wonderful assisted living care to my parents in their home in Tucson. My parents were committed to spending their final days in their own home. Thanks to Homewatch CareGivers, we were able to honor their wish, even with my husband and me living in California. They provided the full range of services, such as, light healthcare, medication, bathing, cooking, cleaning, and shopping. They coordinated skilled nursing care, physical therapy and accompanied my parents on doctors' appointments. Most importantly, they provided warm and intelligent companionship. Homewatch CareGivers were my eyes, ears and even heart as they provided loving care for my parents. I highly recommend Margie Lannon and her team at Homewatch CareGivers. Tami and Jeff P.

BAYADA Adult Nursing
I have used several home nursing agencies for my parents and my disabled son who requires a ventilator. Never has one gone so out of the way to make sure we had the right nurses come to the home. The nurses were the most experienced I have dealt with in 25 years. The management team is extremely helpful and made sure all of our needs were taken care of.

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.
