How Caregivers Provide Colostomy Care To Elders

Justin Villa Care offers experienced and supportive care to help patients and seniors who have a colostomy bag. Our in-home caregivers visit patients’ homes to take care of them, so they can live, walk, and sit comfortably even while carrying a colostomy bag. Being in-home caregivers, we regularly help seniors, from emptying to changing the colostomy bag. Additionally, we also assist with the maintenance of the stoma and colostomy bag.

Often, family members don’t have proper knowledge regarding handling and managing a patient who has undergone a colostomy procedure. That’s why you need to trust us as we have a team of expertise and trained staff to guarantee the most reliable possible colostomy care at home.

What is a Colostomy Bag?

A colostomy bag is also known as a stoma bag or ostomy bag. This is a small, waterproof pouch basically used to store waste from the body. During a Colostomy surgical procedure, an opening is made between the large intestine and the abdominal wall. A colostomy pouch is attached to the opening in order to collect waste from the body. However, this Colostomy bag needs to be emptied at regular intervals.

Justin Villa Care has qualified in-home caregivers and healthcare practitioners holding many years of experience who can do all colostomy-related tasks. 

How We Assist In Delivering Colostomy Bag Care Services?

Whether your need for a catheter or colostomy bag is temporary or long-term, our in-home care agency provides expert supportive care in the comfortable environment of your home. Our team will assist you in changing and managing your colostomy bag and organizing supplies to lessen your transportation to hospitals or other areas.

Justin Villa Care’s team provides training and guidance on maximizing your independence and minimizing complications such as infection and odor.

Why Do You Need In-Home Colostomy Bag Care Services?

Colostomy bag care requires specialized skills. Not everyone has adequate knowledge to handle the needs of seniors who have undergone colostomy procedures. Such elders require caregivers who are trained in colostomy and peristomal care.

Caregivers of Justin Villa Care are responsible and do the cleaning periodically. Our professionals won’t only change the patient’s colostomy bag but also protect the wound from waste and keep the pouch attached to the skin.

So, trust our colostomy care in-home caregivers and let your loved one recover well in the comfort of the home and then live a life of dignity.

Need a caregiver? At Justin Villa Care, we are available (24/7) to provide assistance with Colostomy bag care assistance. To find out more about caregiving services, do not hesitate to contact us.

    Sadly, my Mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2021 and it became overwhelming to juggle her care and my job. A social worker recommended hiring a caregiver for seniors and gave me a brochure for Brenda and Doha at Justin Villa Care … More in Torrance. I am so thankful I called because their staff has been so professional and attentive to my Mother's care needs. Brenda is a registered nurse and her background uncovered some issues with her medication that she helped resolve with her doctors. I now don't have to worry as much about my Mother being at safe knowing that there are competent and skilled caregivers who treat my Mom so well. I highly recommend anyone to call Justin Villa Care if you are in need of a quality senior home care provider in Torrance.

    I hired 24/7 caregivers from Justin Villa Care two months ago to care for my aging Mother and could not be happier. The time and attention that I have received from Brenda and her team has been a blessing. They've been checking in … More with us consistently to see how things are going and have responded with each of our questions with professionalism and care. So happy to have found them and would recommend them in a heart beat!

    My mom had a stroke that turned her life upside down from an independent woman to needing help with daily tasks. Justin Villa Care was referred to me by the case manager at the hospital and I’m so thankful she did. They met with our family … More promptly
    and brought in a caregiver who has been super helpful. Thank you Brenda and Doha for all your help.

Colostomy care is how to change, empty, or clean your pouch system. Our caregivers are well-trained and taught about colostomy care.

Here are the following cleaning tips:

  • We use plain warm water and wipe gently to clean around the stoma.
  • We dry the skin thoroughly with a dry wipe. Pat gently, taking care not to rub.
  • Then, place used wipes in the disposal bag with the used pouch.

The most common home health care services for Colostomy care include maintaining a healthy stoma and emptying and changing the colostomy pouch or bag. At Justin Villa Care, our in-home caregivers are also well aware of such services.
