Are painful feet making you feel unsteady? Healthy, comfortable feet are essential especially for older people

Man getting his nails cut


Nail Cutting Service

We have a nail cutting service available to older people. You may smile but toe nails can be a real nuisance as you get older and they are not always easy to cut on your own.

Long toenails can cause falls and possible hospitalisation as a result.

The service is available in Weymouth, Portland, Purbeck, Sherborne and West Dorset for people over the age of 50.

How much does it cost?

It costs £13.00 per session, which will usually last between 15 and 30 minutes, and an initial cost of £16.00 for the purchase of your own clipper set.
