Sign up for April 29 foot care clinic in Rossmore

Seniors in Rossmore will soon be taking steps in the right direction with the opening a foot care clinic.

“They’re professional and they want to help you,” says a client of Prince Edward Community Care for Senior’s foot care clinic.

Registered nurses will begin to see seniors at a clinic in Rossmore in addition to the clinics in Picton and Wellington.  The first clinic is to be held Wednesday, April 29th and with a limited number of appointments available so seniors are encouraged to call early.

PEC-Community-Care-Foot-Care-client-and-nurseIn December, Community Care began delivering hot Meals on Wheels to seniors living in Ameliasburgh.

“This is part of an effort that the agency has launched to bring services to seniors closer to where they live. We are pleased to be delivering hot Meals on Wheels to the northern parts of Prince Edward County,” said Margaret Werkhoven, president of Prince Edward Community Care, “and now we’re also offering a foot care clinic in Ameliasburgh, thanks to the generosity of Cornerstone Church on Hwy. 62 which has agreed to provide space for this program.”

“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.
