Q: What are the ways to reduce the risk of bedsores?

A:

Here are five tips to look for to reduce the risk of your loved one developing a bedsore:

  1. Look at your loved one's skin over bony areas.  If they are not being moved enough, you will find red skin.
  2. Make sure their skin is dry, clean and being moisturized regularly.
  3. Make sure they are eating regularly and a healthy diet.
  4. Have them move regularly by standing or walking., or at least shift positions in a wheelchair.
  5. Make sure the bed sheets are dry.
