Try our toenail cutting service to help you to stay comfortable on your feet

Man getting his nails cut

What does the service offer?

Our footcare service is run by trained healthcare professionals. They can check your feet for any problems, such as pain or swelling, help with cutting nails, and remove dead or cracked skin. We are not able to offer a full podiatry service. If you require podiatry, please contact your GP for a referral. 

Who is it for?

The service is for adult residents of Kensington & Chelsea, Westminster and Camden aged 55 years and over, or who have physical and learning difficulties.

How much does it cost?

We provide home appointments for £22 per hour and clinic appointments for £18 per hour. The first appointment will cost £8 extra for a toenail cutting kit, which you are to keep with you for future appointments. Each person is required to have their own kit for health and safety.

Each appointment will be least one hour per client; there are three hours in one care package. Age UK K&C are proud to be an accredited Living Wage employer, committed to paying our employees a fair wage that reflects the real cost of living.
