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.

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