Wound Care

Wound Care

Many Canadians are impacted by wound or skin issues. There are many types of wounds, some examples include; surgical wounds, pressure ulcers and diabetic wounds. Sometimes when a person has surgery they are discharged from the hospital with a wound that still needs to heal.

Foot Care

Foot Care

Many people develop problems with their feet that require medical attention, particularly those who are aging. People living with diabetes especially, need to make sure they receive foot care from qualified healthcare providers. That’s because people with diabetes are at risk of developing wounds and infections on their feet due to decreased sensation and extra dry skin that can lead to calluses.

During a visit to your home, a nurse with specialized knowledge in foot care and treatment and diabetes educators can provide education on living with diabetes, including foot care.

Ostomy Care

Ostomy Care

An 'ostomy' or 'stoma' is a surgically created opening in your abdomen that allows waste or urine to leave your body. There are several different types of ostomies, but the main reason for this surgical procedure is that the body can no longer effectively pass waste from the body and requires a surgically created 'waste management system'.

People with ostomies can receive care at home, including support from nurse specialists known as Enterostomal Therapists (ETs).

Services we offer:

  • Before surgery: Assisting the surgeon with determining the best location for the ostomy opening
  • After surgery: Assisting with choosing the best ostomy supplies and appliances
  • Providing expert teaching on how to live with and manage an ostomy

As individuals continue to live with their ostomies, changes in weight and health may cause appliance leaks to occur. Re-assessment by an ET nurse can address the problem.

It can take time to adjust to an ostomy and you will likely have many questions, like “what can I eat?”, “can I participate in any sports?” or “can other people tell I've had ostomy surgery?” We can help you become comfortable by helping you to manage ostomy care and continue with normal activities.

Many people successfully return to work and can independently manage their ostomy care. Our goal is to help you get back to your best level of health, and we are here to help if you experience problems with ostomy supplies, leakage or other issues.
