Ostomy Support Group

Home Care Ostomy Support Group

The Ostomy Support Group meets monthly to share experiences, provide support to one another and learn about the most updated products and  ostomy information.  The meetings  are informal  round-table discussions on topics of interest, new product demonstrations, occasional guest speakers and a question and answer session with  the  enterostomal therapy nurse or  wound, ostomy and continence nurse.

Any patient with any type of ostomy, whether  it be permanent or temporary is welcome to attend. There are three main types of ostomies: colostomy, ileostomy and urostomy. Patients with all  three types of ostomies have attended meetings on a regular basis. Many patients bring family members or friends with them.  Friends and family are always welcome to attend.

Meeting are held from 12 Noon to 1:00 PM on the first Tuesday of each month September through May in the:
