Foot care clinics a good step for healthy seniors

Seniors in Ameliasburgh are invited to take a healthy step in the direction of comfort  with Community Care for Seniors’ foot care clinic.

“They’re professional and they want to help you,” says a long-time client of the foot care clinic.

Registered nurses visit with seniors at a clinic in Ameliasburgh, in addition to clinics at Rossmore Picton and Wellington.


“Careful and regular care of the feet is essential as people age.  It can become harder to reach one’s feet, the correct tools might not be readily available, and toenails can become thicker and tougher to handle,” notes Debbie MacDonald Moynes, Community Care’s executive director.

Each appointment at the foot care clinic is a half hour duration in a confidential setting with a registered nurse who has specialized training in foot care.  All tools are sterilized and then autoclaved.  The first appointment is $25 and subsequent appointments are $20 Most people return every six weeks for maintenance foot care.
