Caring for a person with a stoma and dementia

Caring for a person with a stoma and dementia (November 2018)

Teaching a person with dementia how to care for their stoma is not possible in all cases, but where it is possible, attempts should be made to encourage them. The level of independence achievable will vary. A person with dementia may benefit from extra time and repetition of the tips in this booklet, which were suggested by healthcare professionals who have been actively involved in the care of ostomates with dementia.
