What We Do
The Regina and District Ostomy Society is a non-profit mutual support society for the benefit of people who have had or are about to have intestinal or urinary diversion surgery. We are a chapter of the Ostomy Canada Society. Our purpose is:
- To help people with intestinal and/or urinary diversions to lead full and productive lives and to provide information and emotional support to their families and caregivers.
- To educate the public about intestinal and urinary diversion surgery.
- To provide trained visitors to those who have undergone intestinal and/or urinary diversions, including preoperative and postoperative visits or phone calls, at the request of the physician or NSWOC (enterostomal therapist).
Map of Meeting Location
We provide lay visiting service, at the request of the physician, patient or Nurse Specialized in Wound, Ostomy and Continence (NSWOC), either pre-operative or post-operative or both. Our Visitor Coordinator is Ruth Suderman.
For this spring we have a one day seminar planned for May 13th. It will be held at the Royal Executive Hotel in Regina. We will soon have more information on this website but there will be speakers and vendors and people to talk to. In June we’re planning a summer wind up for either June 10 or 13. Keep in touch here on the website or on Facebook. No meetings are held during the months of January or February and the months of July and August). Keep up to date by reading our newsletter. Hope to see you there.
