Pressure sores, bedsores, or other broken skin can be a serious problem when caring for someone at home. In addition to changing position in bed often, to help keep skin healthy, keep the sheets dry and free from wrinkles, and massage the back and other parts of the body (like hips, elbows, and ankles) that press down on the bed. Report any red or broken areas on the skin to the doctor or nurse right away.
