The United Ostomy Association of Omaha is a support group for persons contemplating colostomy, ileostomy or urostomy surgery and for those who have had this surgery. We welcome also those with the newer diversions, Kock type and pouches such as “J” to join us. We have offered educational programs, support and fellowship for over 40 years in the greater Omaha area.
Meetings are held on the first non-holiday Monday of the month, except December, July and August. Meetings are at 6:30 pm until about 8:30 pm, at the Nebraska Methodist College of Nursing at 87th and Burt (see map). The room is #3214 (or either side of this room). December is an alternative date due to Christmas Holidays. No meetings in July and August for summer vacations.
Ostomy nurses are present at these meetings to assist with questions and support. We have speakers arranged for these meetings that share useful information related to the problems that ostomates and their families face. We also have vendors that bring new products and are able to assist with samples.
We have Visitor Training Sessions that prepare ostomates to assist others to deal with their situations. This can also be educational and useful to those who want a refresher course or would like more information regarding ostomy life.
