After stoma surgery, it’s important to learn how to care for your stoma and change your stoma appliance. We've created some picture tutorial booklets and videos on daily stoma care, which you may find helpful.
It is important to know how to change your stoma appliance properly, in order to maintain skin health and ensure optimal comfort and security. Our Care at Home booklets and videos illustrate how to care for your stoma and how to change a one-piece or two-piece stoma appliance.
The booklets include tips and tricks for daily stoma care and illustrate each step of the pouch changing process with colour photos. If you prefer to see a demonstration, you can choose to watch the instructional videos on how to change either a one-piece or a two-piece stoma pouch.
