As people age, the chances of developing foot-related health complications increases.
According to the Canadian Federation of Podiatric Medicine, 75 per cent of Canadians will experience foot health problems of varying degrees at one time or another in their lives.
As we age, the chance of developing health problems with our feet increases. Prevention is always the best medicine. This includes a daily self inspection and washing and proper drying of our feet, clean socks on a daily basis, good footwear and a regular examination of our feet by a professional.
Foot care will be provided by a Registered Practical Nurse who has taken specialized training in Foot Care
Focus is on prevention, early intervention and education to help keep you mobile and decrease your risk of developing foot problems and conditions that can lead to serious health complications
The nurse will assess feet for circulation, sensation, edema (swelling), and the potential risk of ulcer development and falls
Treatments include nail trimming and filing, care of corns, calluses, warts, ingrown toenails, fungal and thick nails and skin care
