A stoma is a surgically created opening on the abdomen that allows the diversion of bodily waste from the digestive or urinary system. Stomas are typically created when normal bowel or bladder function is compromised due to various medical conditions such as cancer, inflammatory bowel disease, or congenital abnormalities. There are three main types of stomas: colostomy, ileostomy, and urostomy. A colostomy diverts waste from the colon, an ileostomy from the small intestine, and a urostomy from the urinary system.
Caring for a stoma involves regular cleaning, proper placement and securing of the stoma bag or appliance, and monitoring for any signs of irritation or infection. Our dedicated team of caregivers and healthcare professionals is trained to provide compassionate stoma care, ensuring the comfort and well-being of individuals with stomas in the comfort of their homes. With our expertise and attention to detail, we aim to empower our clients to manage their stoma with confidence and maintain a high quality of life.
