Blogs & Other Web Resources for Families Seeking Information Regarding Bed Sores

Once thought to be an unpreventable condition that was just part of getting old, today we now see that bed sores generally be prevented with proper care and nutrition.
Given the fact that bedsores impact more than 500,000 patients every year and result in billions of dollars in resulting medical treatment, it is easy to see why bed sores have become such an important topic amongst websites and blogs. Here are some valuable websites and articles related to bedsores that I have found particularly useful for families seeking information or simply looking for a place to vent frustrations.
