We're All About Education

We believe knowledge is power – knowing more about living with an ostomy or the products and resources available to you can help empower you. This information can also help others better understand your experience. Check out these topics below.

Healthy Skin

Healthy skin around your stoma not only helps your pouching system adhere properly, but may also improve your quality of life. Taking special care to improve and preserve skin health may help you feel comfortable with your ostomy.

The Right Barrier

Living with an ostomy doesn’t mean you have to live with stoma fluid leakage or skin irritation. Your skin barrier fit plays a large role in your skin health experience. Learn how selecting the right skin barrier is important to ensure a good seal and skin protection.

Personalised Support

You may have questions about your ostomy, how to care for your stoma, and how to keep on living the life you want to live — but you don’t have to figure it out on your own. The Hollister Customer Care team is here to help you with personalised ostomy support.
