About Tootsie Footcare Service

Toenails seem like such a little thing but left un-trimmed they can affect your mobility, balance, confidence and lead to long-term complications.

But keeping your toenails trimmed and managing your foot hygiene can be a real problem if you have difficulty with your eyesight, mobility, grip or if you have thickened toenails.

Caring for someone else can also mean you start to manage another person’s personal care but feel anxious and lack confidence to tackle new skills.

Age UK Derby and Derbyshire and NHS Derbyshire County are working together to offer an affordable, long-term solution.

Tootsies Quality

Tootsies Treatment

• Each appointment takes approximately 30 minutes. Your first session will take longer.
• ;A footcare treatment includes nail trim and filing hard skin. Help is available to remove and replace footwear, stockings etc.
• Tootsies will visit each venue once every six weeks allowing you to make regular bookings to manage toenail growth.

Using Tootsies

• Its simple. Call us on 01773 766922 and ask to make your first appointment.

At your first appointment
