Podiatry – toe nail care – put your best foot forward!

For older people, good podiatry is fundamental to health, safety, and mobility; all essential to maintaining independence. Our toenail cutting service is available to those who are unable to cut their own and/or have no one else to do it for them. Our staff and volunteers are trained by a professional podiatrist/chiropodist, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) to standards set by The Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists.

The service is currently only available within client’s own homes.

Please note Covid-19 Health and Safety measures are in place with full Protective clothing worn.

Please note that we are unable to take clients that are diabetic or taking anticoagulants, such as Warfarin.

 Home from hospital service 

 

Working out of Wexham Park Hospital, our team provide accompanied transport for people to help them get home from hospital. We then ensure that our clients are settled in and help with the little things that may be difficult in those first weeks after discharge.

Our service provides our clients with peace of mind, helps to avoid re-admission to hospital, and provides practical and emotional support to help with independent living and rehabilitation. We also reduce the waiting time from hospital to home and provide support  in accessing other services once back home.
