Compression Socks for Seniors
As we age, venous deficiency may affect us even more due to the wear and tear of venous valves and weakening of leg muscles.
Symptoms of venous deficiency and poor circulation can cause edema (swelling), skin lesions, leg pain and soreness and deep vein thrombosis (DVT, small blood clots in the legs).
Compression socks are still the best non-drug intervention in alleviating symptoms related to venous deficiency and poor circulations.
We know putting on or taking off compression socks can be more difficult for older adults. Our team members are trained to provide you with tips and donning aids to make putting on compression socks easier.
