Sadly, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Foot Care and many of our other face to face services and activities are currently on hold. However, Age UK East Sussex is committed to continuing to provide the best support possible to older people in our local communities. For information on services and support available please call 01273 476704 or email


Some people find that cutting their own toenails and other aspects of foot care prove to be a challenging task. This can be for a number of reasons including limited vision, being unable to hold nail clippers or reach their toes due to arthritis, or sometimes simply not being as supple as they once were. A lack of attention to foot care and foot hygiene can create significant problems including pain, infections, reduced mobility and an increased risk of falls. 

What does the service offer?

Our Foot Care service provides nail cutting and offers moisturising of feet if required. We will arrange for you to be seen in our venue in Hastings.

Is there a cost?

Yes. Prices are detailed below:

  • Standard nail cutting - £18
  • Finger nail cutting (only with a footcare appointment) - £2.50
  • Nail kit (one off payment at you first appointment only) - £13.00

How do I access the service?

We accept referrals from the person who would like to receive foot care or from third parties such as friends, relatives, G.P.s, and District Nurses.

If you would like to register for the service please call 01273 476704 or email and ask for an application pack to be sent to you or if you are already a registered member then please contact us for an appointment.
