The Ostomy Association of Greater Orlando, Inc. is an IRS 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit corporation with “umbrella” status under our parent company, United Ostomy Associations of America, Inc. We are an all volunteer support group dedicated to assisting people who have or will have intestinal or urinary tract diversions by providing emotional support, family support, educational services, advocacy, and promoting the services of this organization to the public and professional communities. Members include ostomates, their families, Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses (WOCN), physician advisors and other interested persons.
The purpose of the Orlando area support group is to aid patients and their families in the practical and emotional adjustments to an ostomy. We offer rehabilitation help but do not provide medical advice. Nothing in this site should be interpreted as medical advice.
Methods used are mutual support, sharing of experiences and practical advice.
Activities include visiting new ostomates, educational meetings, teaching through literature and audio-visual presentations, lectures and discussions with health care personnel and the public.
