Unfortunately, my family member was diagnosed with colon cancer earlier this year, and an ostomy was done.
Once a week, the attachment and stoma bag requires changing. This can be quite a costly affair. Thankfully thru my sister’s friend, we were introduced to Tong Hai Department Store.
Conveniently located at:
Blk 625 Ang Mo Kio ave 9 #01-100. Ang Mo Kio 560625
Tel : +6564537075
The store carries a range of medical supplies and equipment. Most importantly, the stoma supplies we required were available. Items include Covatec skin barriers, pouches,stomahesive powder, adhesive remover wipes and sprays. But please take note to get the suppliers the hospitals assigned you to size your stoma correctly before purchasing the barriers and pouches. Stoma sizes change over time so buy a box at a time rather than in bulk.
In addition to the stoma supplies, I found that other items such as bed pads, hospice wipes and ensure health supplements were readily available at the store.
I was ecstatic when I got the news that they also supply Ensure coffee in cartons instead of individually. Currently, in major supermarkets, these are sold separately. My family member loves this flavour best compared to the usual strawberry, vanilla and chocolate flavours you may find in tins.
We saved quite a substantial amount of money purchasing medical supplies from the Tong Hai Department store. I would definitely recommend this store to others. For purchases above SGD$200.00, delivery is free within residential areas.
