The Morris County Ostomy Association (MCOA) is a community based, local organization made up of volunteers whose purpose it is to reach out to ostomates and their families, providing them with a network from which they can share experiences, obtain information, and gain emotional support.
The association’s voluntary visitation program offers support on a one-to-one basis to patients and their families. The ostomy volunteer visitor is carefully chosen and trained. The visitor is well adjusted to his/her ostomy and is able to offer additional support and information on ostomy care and management at home.
The Morris County Ostomy Association holds regular meetings the third Wednesday of every month, starting at 7:30m p.m. and ending at 9:00 p.m. The meetings normally consist of an informal gathering of ostomates and individuals who may be contemplating ostomy related procedures. Families and friends as well as significant others are always welcome.
Meetings takle place in the Carol Simon Center of the Morristown Medical Center. After entering the building, turn right toward the elevators and then left to the meeting area.
The evening usually involves an informal talk by a physician, a nurse specialist, a distributor of ostomy supplies, or social worker. Presentations are always on a topic of interest to the entire group. Most importantly, the meeting offers the opportunity for individuals to share information and discuss mutual interest and concerns.
