Promoting self-confidence, social interaction, and a sense of well-being.

What is stoma care?

Stoma care is a crucial aspect of homecare that involves the management and maintenance of a stoma, which is a surgically created opening in the abdomen through which bodily waste is expelled. It is often necessary for people who have undergone certain types of surgery, such as colostomy or ileostomy, due to various medical conditions. The purpose of stoma care is to ensure that the stoma is functioning properly, to prevent infections, and to maintain good hygiene. This can involve cleaning the stoma and changing the pouching system, monitoring the output, and providing education and emotional support to the individual and their family members. With the right care and support, individuals with stomas can lead a normal and healthy life.

The goal of stoma care

Stoma care aims to ensure the well-being of individuals with stomas. The primary goal of stoma care is to maintain and improve the quality of life of patients by providing them with optimal stoma care services. A well-managed stoma can help to improve the comfort, confidence, and self-esteem of patients and reduce the risk of complications such as infections and hernias. Proper stoma care involves regular inspection, cleansing, and changing of the stoma site, as well as careful management of the surrounding skin and appliances. Ultimately, the goal of stoma care is to enable patients to lead healthy, active, and fulfilling lives despite having a stoma.
