Care is available for you in the privacy of your home, when your nurse, your doctor or our phone support is not available. Care will offer you basic introductions and guides to use the products, inspirational themes for different kinds of lifestyle as well as stories from other Coloplast users.

Coloplast Care®

From the coloplast Care Team & Marketing Department

 

Making life easier for people with intimate healthcare needs is the Coloplast mission and after launching Coloplast Care (a free service) in June 2013, we feel we are "walking the talk"

 

We have touched the lives of more than 1300 new and existing people living with an ostomy via our call centre since the launch, with the number growing monthly. Feedback suggests that this service certainly makes a difference to the users of our products following discharge from hopsitla. Mostly, new users are faced with having to cope with this life changing  experience in the "less secure environment" of the home and without the expertise of the healthcare professional.

Now they have the peace of mind that the support from a Coloplast Care appliance specialist is only a phone call away.

 

In recent study conducted in Korea, 88%  of new ostomates interviewed and who had enrolled in Coloplast Care, expresed an increaed an level of confidence in managingthei stoma following as opposed to only 45.7% who enrolled in Coloplast Care Service. This is clear evidence that a community support service (like ColoplastCre) extends the services of the hospital based ET nurse and facilitates the challenges experienced during the initial turbulent times post discharge.

 

In an under-resourced and over-burdened healthcare environment we at Coloplast believ that through partnering with hopsitals, he;athcare professionla and payes, We develop services and solutions that will only improve the quality of care for the ostomy community of South Africa.

Travelling Tips

How can I be prepared when I'm away from home?

 

When you're away from home, even for a short time, it's a good idea to carry an extra pouching system and plastic storage bags for odor control.  Leakage shouldn't happen, but if it does you will want to be prepared.  Do not leave your extra supplies in your car, since summer heat and winter cold can alter the barrier's adhesive. 

 

When travelling by plane, train or bus, remember to carry your supplies with you.  This will avoid problems if your baggage is lost or delayed.
