Benefits of Stoma Care at Home

After surgery or diagnosis, our focus should be on self-care and resting well for a full recovery. However, the reality is that we tend to spend much of our time and energy working out viable care arrangements, from transportation and queues to cost management, to get the care we need after discharge.

For those with chronic conditions, visits to hospitals, clinics or treatment facilities to get nursing procedures completed can be a common and regular occurrence. However, medical appointments are often time-consuming and the commute can be costly and a hassle, especially for those with mobility constraints.

Sometimes, we may also suddenly find ourselves in need of urgent nursing care due to unforeseen circumstances, such as needing stoma care due to skin irritation. Speed is key in such scenarios. Travelling to a care facility and waiting in line may not be possible.

How Can Home Nursing Care Help?

Urgent Situations

Our nurses visit families caught off-guard by situations which require specialised nursing care.

Personal Care

Assist with the activities of daily living (ADLs) – eating, bathing, getting dressed, toileting, transferring, and continence.

Night Care

Care provided through the night to assist with toileting or nursing needs, prevent wandering and reduce fall-risk.

Getting Quality Nursing Care Should Be Fuss-Free

Besides hospitals and care facilities, nursing procedures can also be completed at home.

Qualified home nurses can bring personalised nursing care you need to your doorstep, saving the hassle and cost of travelling, and also skipping long queues. Most importantly, you can immediately rest and recover in the comfort of your home after the procedure.

Home nurses are also able to assess potential safety risks at home that may hinder your recovery process. For example, they may recommend simple home modifications such as placing a rug on a slippery floor or installing grab bars in the toilets of seniors with high fall risk.

With a specialised understanding of medication and drugs, home nurses can also support with medication management, and ensure that the right medications are being taken at the right times to control health conditions and prevent harmful drug interactions.
