We'll help you look after your feet

We run a basic toenail cutting service for anyone who is unable to manage their own nail care.

We aim to provide a personal service, regardless of age or ability, in a safe environment that will enhance a person's mobility and comfort. 

This could be on a short term basis or ongoing, for as long as the service is needed.

Our staff

  • Our nail cutters have had full training.
  • They are fully insured and DBS (Disclosure and Barring) checked for security purposes.
  • All our staff carry proof of identity - please ask to see their identification badge, they will be happy to show it to you.

How it works
At each visit our nail cutters will clean your feet using anti-bacterial wipes, then cut or file your nails as necessary.  If you wish they will also gently massage your feet and apply your own moisturising cream.

The cost for each treatment is £20

A discount is available for multiple clients treated at the same appointment.  For example, a couple requiring treatment together would be charged £35.

Payment is usually made at the time of treatment by cash or cheque but other options are available.  Please let us know if you would prefer to be sent an invoice.

Who can use the service?

  • Anyone who needs help cutting their toenails, including people who are diabetic.
  • This is a toenail cutting service only, so we are unable to treat ingrown toenails, corns, callouses or foot infections.  Clients with such conditions should seek advice from a podiatrist or chiropodist registered on the Health Care Professionals Care Register.
  • You do not need to be referred by a GP or other professional, but clients with health conditions that have affected the condition of their feet should seek advice from their GP before starting the service.
  • We are happy to treat clients with dementia, although it is desirable that they have a familiar person to accompany them at the appointment.

Nail clippers
Due to the thickness or shape, and sometimes brittle nature, of older nails they often require a heavy duty pair of nail clippers and an extra coarse file.  Clients can supply their own equipment or we are happy to supply these at an additional one-off cost of £12.
