Toe Nail Cutting

Toenail cutting service

What does it do?

The mention of this service often raises a smile, but it is a serious response to a serious problem.  Toenails don't stop growing and can cause difficulties if they are not regularly cut. 

You may be interested in this service if you are aged 60 or over and:

  • are unable to hold clippers
  • are unable to bend down
  • are unable to reach your feet
  • have little strength in your hands 

Age UK Somerset offer clients a simple toenail cutting service provided by trained staff in a clinic environment.  We do not provide any other kind of podiatry or chiropody service and we can not help with corns, bunions, hard skin, etc. 

We can cut your toenails four times a year, that is every thirteen weeks.
