We are delighted to announce a new service available in Teignbridge and South Hams, Feet First, offered in partnership with qualified foot care specialist Tracey Patrick.
Tracey says “I have returned to Devon after living in Surrey, something I always planned to do, it is such a beautiful part of the country. I have been a Community Nurse for the last 20 years and also trained as a Foot Health Practitioner more recently.
As a Foot Health Practitioner (FHP) I have a diploma in foot health, which means I am qualified to work in the private sector to undertake routine clinical work necessary to maintain the health of the foot. I am working with Age UK Devon to visit people in their own homes, something I feel very comfortable with having been a Community Nurse for many years.
Looking after our own feet becomes increasingly difficult as we get older. You might struggle to trim nails due to either poor sight or inability to reach your feet. This can lead to overgrown thickened nails. Foot Practitioners such as myself can take care of your nails as well as check your feet overall and can help you to be more comfortable and active. I believe making feet feel good is crucial to how you feel overall and has a huge impact on health and wellbeing.”
Tracey is qualified to help you look after your feet, and has undergone a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.
