Independent living > Foot/Nail services

Elderly people can experience mobility problems caused by foot problems such as bunions, corns, calluses, and very hard toe nails. Lack of affordable foot care services may result in an elderly person becoming housebound. Cutting toe nails can be difficult for elderly people to do themselves and as a result their foot care may be neglected. It is especially important for people with diabetes, ulcers, or poor circulation to see a chiropodist. Chiropody services are provided by the NHS although they are not very comprehensive. Sometimes agencies provide a toe nail cutting service for older people at day centres. Chiropodists will sometimes provide a visiting service for housebound people. Podiatrists provide diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of problems affecting the feet and ankles.
