Stoma Assessment, Therapy & Treatment

Leading a Fulfilling Life After Stoma Surgery

Security, confidentiality, comfort & convenience

Stoma care can be intimidating for both the patient and their family. It is usual for clients to initially feel apprehensive because of their altered body image and altered elimination processes. Individuals can confidently resume daily activities with proper support and stoma care management.

Stoma Therapy

A stoma is a surgically created opening in the body, either an ileostomy or colostomy of the bowel or a urostomy of the bladder. They can be temporary or permanent and require specialized care to look after them. Adjusting to life with a stoma can take time and effort. Our experienced stoma therapy supporters understand this and work with you to provide optimal care.
