Visitor Program

Our Visitor Program is one of our most important works. Trained members visit ostomy patients on the phone, in hospitals or at their homes, to answer non-medical questions about ostomy issues.

Population(s) Served

We have monthly general meetings, which feature programs of special interest for people with ostomies and allow us to regularly meet and simply talk about our new life with an ostomy. There are always veteran members to answer questions and share tips.
