Foot Care for Seniors LOI


The Importance of Foot Care

The importance of proper foot care increases as we age. Professional foot care services help maintain mobility and independence. Services typically include:

  • Soaking feet for 5-10 minutes
  • Cleaning around cuticles and under nails
  • Trimming and filing toenails
  • Buffing corns and calluses
  • Applying lotion
  • Monitoring of foot problems with an emphasis on the challenges related to diabetes and poor circulation

Patients with more serious problems are referred to their family physician or a podiatrist.

Learn about the importance of Foot Care at the National Institute on Aging.
