Calling All Ostomates
CALLING ALL OSTOMATES, COLOSTOMATES, ILEAOSTOMATES AND UROSTOMATES
Do you have a stoma? Do you know anyone with a stoma, apart from the contacts you made while in hospital? You may be a colostomate, an ileostomate, or a urostomate.
You may feel isolated, that you haven't got anyone to talk to who could possibly understand the way you feel, or you may just want to meet other people who are in the same position.
Did you know that there is now an informal gathering where you can meet with other Ostomates? Come along and meet others who have been in a similar situation, but now have experience of living with a stoma.
A support group for Ostomates meets every Monday afternoon (between 2.OOpm - 4.00pm) at Martins Heron Community Hall, Bracknell Berks
Martins Heron Community centre is easy to get to. It is by the Tesco supermarket so there is plenty of parking and of course, is less than 5 minutes walking distance from Martins Heron railway station.
The afternoon is free, informal and friendly -just pop in and join us on any Monday afternoon.
You can stay for as long as you like and leave when-ever you like !
We talk about everything!! Politics, gardening, theatre, the latest TV soaps -everything that is of interest plus, of course, a chance to ask questions to someone "who knows how you feel".
Martins Heron Community Hall is in the Tesco car park at Martins Heron (which means plenty of parking spaces) and is a short walk from the train station if you are coming from Ascot or Wokingham.
If you need to find out more please call me. I would love to hear from you and to welcome you in person to the group meeting.
If you need any further information:- please call me on 01344 426652 Jackie Dudley
