Wound & Ostomy Care Program

Nightingale Homecare understands how challenging it can be to manage a wound or a new stoma at home. Complicating matters is the fact that there are hundreds of products available for people with wounds or ostomies and the choice of product can make all the difference in how quickly healing takes place and life gets back to normal.

Nightingale Homecare’s wound and ostomy care team knows how to select the best products for the type of wound or ostomy, factoring in medical history, nutritional status, mobility and other important considerations.

We strive to:

  • Make our clients as comfortable and independent as possible
  • Select the wound and ostomy products that will result in the fastest healing, the least discomfort, the most independence and the least inconvenience
  • Address any issues that might negatively affect healing, such as nutrition, hydration, co-occurring diseases, infection, unrelieved pressure and others
  • Prevent infection
