Home & community care

The Home and Community Care services provide a range of health care and support services for eligible residents who have acute, chronic, palliative or rehabilitative health care needs.

Foot care

Feet are one of the most important parts of our bodies and deserve to be beautiful and as we get older, they may need extra care. Healthy feet are a vital part of our health and mobility, they allow us to walk, stand, balance, and act as a shock absorber to the rest of our body. In one lifetime, our feet carry us an average of 100,000 miles and absorb an impact of 5 million pounds each day.

Healthy feet are especially important to those with diabetes. Diabetics may have reduced blood circulation which can cause dry skin, cracked heels, and may cause your nails to grow slowly and increase healing time. Diabetics may also suffer from nerve disease which causes them to loose feeling in their feet and may lead to injuries and infections because high blood pressure encourages bacteria growth.

Our Home & Community Care team can help you with regular foot care and help treat plantar warts, plantar fasciitis, cracked skin, cracked heels, calluses, athlete’s feet, bunions, fungal nails, and ingrown nails.
