Ostomy Guide

We are pleased to announce our updated “Living Well With an Ostomy” guide. This updated resource includes information about how to care for your colostomy, ileostomy or urostomy, as well as definitions and descriptions, including full-color photos. The booklet is designed to not only help you live with an ostomy, but live well. In addition, there is also a product guide and a glossary.

Once you enter in your information and click “Order Today,” you will receive a confirmation email, and a physical copy of the guide will be delivered to you.

This reference booklet adds to Shield HealthCare’s OstomyLife community with guidance on lifestyle issues, peristomal skin complication, pouching systems and more. Our lifestyle section includes information about dressing, going back to work, traveling, telling people about your surgery, exercising and intimacy when you have a stoma.

Much of the lifestyle content was written by Shield HealthCare’s Ostomy Lifestyle Specialist, Laura Cox.

If you are a health care professional, we welcome to you to contact your local Shield HealthCare sales office to discuss your patient’s needs with a representative.

My 89-year-old mother loves to swim but she has found that the pouch fills with water when she gets into the pool. What can we do to fix this?

We recently had someone reach out to our Facebook community with a similar question, and several of our OstomyLife community members responded with their own advice.
 
Hopefully you and your mother will find their answers helpful ...
