Ostomy & Continence Care

We also provide Wound Ostomy Continence Nurses (WOCN) on staff

What is Ostomy Care?

An ostomy is a surgical procedure that involves removing diseased or damaged tissue of the gastrointestinal or urinary system and creating an artificial opening in the belly region to allow for the depositing of bodily waste. Ostomy Care helps you remain hygienic from the comfort of your own home with skilled nurses.

What is Continence Care?

At HealthFlex, we help our patients get and keep control of their bladder or bowel functions as part of continence care. This is done by giving them tips on how to keep their bladder healthy, doing a continence assessment, and, if necessary, coming up with a treatment plan.

Don’t Deal with Incontinence Alone

Incontinence can have a big effect on the quality of life of those who have it. It can make people feel embarrassed and ashamed and stop them from doing normal things. People with this condition are also more likely to fall, which is a common reason why seniors are placed in nursing homes.

Many people with incontinence put up with their symptoms for years. However, incontinence and bladder control problems can be cured or managed in the comfort of your home with the help of our medical professionals here at HealthFlex.
