Are painful feet making you feel unsteady?

Healthy, comfortable feet are essential, especially as we get older.

Our footcare team have completed training in nail cutting with the NHS podiatry service, and have clinics throughout North, South, and West Dorset.

 

Why take proper care of your feet? 

For a variety of reasons, feet lose cushioning over time and the nails and skin can grow brittle and dry.
Cutting your toenails properly is an important step in maintaining good foot care and they are not always easy to cut on your own. Age UK North, South & West Dorset offers a friendly, simple nail cutting service. Toe nails can be a real nuisance as you get older, and long toenails can cause falls and possible hospitalisation as a result. Our team are here to help.

How much does it cost?

In addition to a warm welcome and a friendly face, the team will complete a free assessment before treatment, and discuss any of the other services that may be beneficial to you. Thereafter, appointments are charged at £20.00 per session, which will usually last between 15 and 30 minutes. For new clients, an initial cost is incurred of £16.00 for the purchase of your own clipper set, these clippers are yours, and should be brought to future appointments, this ensures we can uphold the strictest of hygiene standards for all of our clients.
