My 88-year-old mother has been in a memory care facility since March. In August she developed what appeared to be a pressure sore on her bottom. They have not been able to get it under control and it continues to worsen. A nurse practitioner looked at it and said it could be a Kennedy Terminal Ulcer. Have any of you had an experience with this?
Currently they say the wound is not causing her pain due to the necrotic tissue deadening the nerves in the area. If we send her to the doctor and have it treated vigorously it will cause pain and she will then have to be quarantined which could further her depression. Any thoughts, suggestions?
