Charleston Area Ostomy Association

We are an established and growing support group dedicated to supporting ostomates through the process of recovery and rehabilitation. Our members have survived an often life altering or life threatening disease process. We are here to help you manage your recovery.



The CAOA is a non-profit support group.

We can provide telephone or arrange personal preoperative or postoperative visitation in Charleston, WV and surrounding counties. Our visitors are matched with the most appropriate referral by a certified ostomy nurse or an experienced, professionally trained visitation coordinator.
