We are an affiliate of the United Ostomy Associations of America (UOAA) and are one of hundreds of ostomy support groups in the U.S. As a volunteer-based support group, we are dedicated to improving the quality of life for people who have had or will have a continent or conventional ostomy through education, information, and advocacy.
We meet monthly, usually on the first Sunday of the month from 1:00-3:00 p.m. at the Education Center at Boca Raton Regional Hospital (see map). The Education Center is located on Meadows Road at the rear of the hospital complex just past the emergency room entrance. Call Bruce Green at 973-568-7745 for detailed directions. Our meetings include practical ostomy care information, ostomy supply updates by manufacturer reps and suppliers, guest speakers, round table discussions, and social time. We welcome all ostomates – continent and conventional – their families and friends.
One of this group’s major functions is to provide ostomate visitors, trained in accordance with guidelines from the United Ostomy Associations of America. If you recently had or will have an ostomy or related procedure call Arthur Kravitz (561-447-6977), Harriet Goldberg (561-499-9697) or Bruce Green (973-568-7745). We provide support to both patients and family. We do not give medical advice; nor do we actively assist in physical care of the stoma.
