Helping you to look after your feet

Footcare - Hero.png

It's important to take good care of your feet and give them a little TLC. As you get older your nails grow more slowly meaning they become thicker, more brittle and harder to cut. Our footcare service is here to assist and maintain good foot health with a nail trim and foot soak, leaving your feet softer and more comfortable.

What does the service offer?

Our trained, professional staff can come to your home or welcome you into a private room for your treatment at one of our community venues. If you need some help to remove your shoes and socks they can assist and will make sure you are comfortable for your treatment.

Each treatment takes 20-30 minutes and includes:

  • a relaxing hand/foot soak to cleanse and soften the skin and nails
  • a nail trim to fingernails/toenails
  • soothing hand/foot cream to moisturise and prevent skin dryness or itchiness

A longer appointment for both a hand and foot treatment is available.

Why might I need the footcare service?

A natural part of ageing is that we lose flexibility so it becomes harder to reach down to maintain our feet in good condition. In addition, our nails grow more slowly which means that they become thicker, more brittle and so harder to cut. If you can no longer manage to keep your toenails clipped and your feet in good condition, it is sensible to seek professional help as failing to look after your feet can contribute to poorer mobility and increase the chance of falls in later life.

You might want to use the service simply because it’s nice to be pampered occasionally and have a trained therapist attend to your hands and feet.
