Many older people find it hard to cut their own toenails. This can lead to an increased risk of foot problems as well as being uncomfortable. Keeping your toenails trimmed can help to maintain your mobility and keep you active.

At Age UK Redbridge, Barking and Havering, we are offering a basic service with a qualified professional at an affordable rate.
