There are many accessories on the market to help ostomates. I have just added one more to my website. Stomaworks offer a secure emptying and changing system for anyone with a stoma.

Brilliant news! Some major supermarkets have changed the signage on their accessible toilets. Let's hope more organisations do the same.

Hello again,

Following surgery, there are many ostomates who want to lead a full life and are a true inspiration to everyone. One of these ostomates is Collin Jarvis. I have recently added his blog No Colon Jarvis to my website, and I have watched his video.

Collin is very enthusiastic about spreading the word that an ostomate can not only survive the surgery, but thrive as a result.

Collin has launched a GoFundMe page in order to hire a good videographer to document his journey towards the Olympic trials.

I am sure that every ostomate worldwide wishes Collin good luck in his venture.

Take care, Jean.

Hello again,
Research, support and encouragement can be carried out via many different methods. One of them is the internet, but some ostomates prefer to read a book.
With this in mind, I have added more books to the Books section of my website.

Take care, Jean.

Hello again,

From time to time, ostomates come across a product, which proves invaluable to them. One such product, which has been brought to my attention, is the bed pads from Brolly Sheets. The bed pads are extremely convenient and effective in preventing leakage onto the actual bed/bed linen. The company offers bed pads with and without wings, both of which are comfortable, washable, and are available in different colours.
 
In addition, the company offers large chair pads, car seat protectors, waterproof flat sheets and fitted waterproof mattress protectors.

For further information for the UK, Australia, New Zealand and USA:

Ostomates are finding the bed pads to be both useful at home and on holiday.

Take care, Jean.
