Hi John,

Is this support group still meeting at Mary Washington Hospital? I just joined this forum and am the primary caregiver for my father-in-law who has an ileostomy. We live in King George, VA. My FIL got the ileostomy in October, but doesn't think he can change the bag himself, so my husband and I have been doing it. I thought maybe it would be helpful if he met some people who care for their own and maybe we can get some advice for some recurring problems we've been having. I also would love to know if there is anyone locally that provides ostomy care for caregivers that need a vacation. We have not been able to leave him overnight. The local home assisance companies I've looked into apparently aren't "ostomy certified". If you know of anyone who does this or what other people have done for this that would be a great help.

Thank you for posting the info!
