GOSHEN, Ind. – As many as one in four families has a loved one who is affected by a chronic wound. Anyone can develop a wound that doesn’t heal properly, but most at risk are people with chronic diseases like diabetes, vascular issues, older adults, surgical patients and people with a prior amputation.
