A toenail-cutting service for older people and people with a physical disability who can no longer manage to cut their own toenails and have no carer or family support to help them.
We'll visit you at home
If you struggle to trim your toenails and would like someone come to your home to cut them at a time that suits you, our service can help.
How does it work?
Our Footcare Agents are fully insured and DBS (formerly CRB) checked. They will visit you at home to assess your needs and provide a regular toenail-cutting service, usually every six to eight weeks, depending on how often you need the service.
During the initial appointment the Footcare Agent will assess the condition of your feet and record their findings before cutting your nails.
A footcare kit is essential
You will need to have your own footcare kit which can be purchased from the agent if you do not already own suitable equipment. The kit costs £12.50 and comes in a neat red case. Couples who are both using the service will need their own footcare kit for hygiene reasons. You need to keep them in a safe and obvious place for future visits.
Someone will normally telephone you the day before an appointment to remind you. You can pay by cash or cheque. At the moment our agents cannot accept debit or credit cards.
How much does it cost?
£20 per visit.
