Re: DS, Ostomy and Transition to Adulthood
I'm back with an update.
I have received no help from any of the agencies. I created a job posting and contacted a local college that has a nursing program. They posted the position. I've received no replies.
So, I'm going to work with my son to see if I can teach him to change his appliance (wafer).
If anyone has taught their child, please send suggestions. There is a great video on Youtube that shows someone doing this, so that's a start.
(I just wonder how adults with DS and an ostomy lead somewhat independent lives.)
