Wound Care Management

For more information about Lasell House, please call Marie-Francoise Maitre, (617) 663-7042. 

Treating wounds, particularly chronic, persistent wounds, can be complex and almost impossible to manage at home. Yet, if wounds aren’t treated properly, they can become life-threatening when infection and/or sepsis sets in.

At Lasell House, we provide comprehensive wound care management, and we pride ourselves on high quality, personalized care and positive outcomes.

As a natural result of aging, skin becomes thinner and heals more slowly, which can quickly make a “minor” wound become a major problem.

Our comprehensive care plan for wound management care includes:

  • wound assessment
  • wound cleansing
  • wound dressing changes
  • administration of antibiotics (including IV antibiotics)

The most common types of wounds that we treat include:

  • pressure ulcers (commonly referred to as bed sores)
  • sores
  • surgical wounds
  • burns
  • open wounds
  • wounds with a large surface area
  • wounds caused by chronic illness or disease
  • injuries
  • skin tears

Our 38-bed skilled nursing facility is a Medicare-certified facility. We’ve received a 5-star rating, the highest distinction that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services awards. We offer short-term and long-term wound care management for residents of Lasell Village, as well as people in Newton and the Greater Boston area.

For more information about wound care management at Lasell House, please contact Marie-Francoise Maitre, Director of Admissions, at (617) 663-7042 or mmaitre@lasell.edu.

Please note: Lasell House is affiliated with Lasell Village, a continuing care retirement community in Newton, Massachusetts, just 11 miles from downtown Boston. In addition to providing wound care management, we also offer orthopedic rehab, cardiac rehab, infections and infectious disease management, hospice care and end-of-life care, and stroke recovery and rehab, as well as other nursing care services.


“This is an EXCELLENT facility that cared for my mother recently. The environment was clean, safe, and welcoming. We want to acknowledge Ed (Nursing Supervisor), Heather (Social Worker), Marie, Ruth, Tanya, and Marissa, who provided day-to-day care. They all went over and above, and we could not be more grateful.”
