Age UK Medway provides a footcare service for people living in Medway and North West Kent in the comfort of their own home. If you, or someone close to you, is finding it difficult to cut or look after their toenails, our friendly team are here to help.
As you get older, caring for your feet can become more difficult, and this can cause discomfort. Investing a bit of time and thought into caring for your feet now, can prevent them causing you pain in the future. Our Footcare service includes:
Cutting and filing toe nails, keeping them at a comfortable length
Smoothing and moisturising dry and rough skin
Checking for cracks and breaks in the skin, and inflammation such as blisters
Looking for signs of infection like nail fungus or other obvious early problems, and seeking professional advice
Choosing suitable socks and footwear
Helping to cut finger nails.
