I have been a licensed/insured mobile pedicurist, specializing in senior foot care since 1995. I completed Medical Assisting in 2002, and I do my best to keep up to date on geriatric conditions. Foot care is part of good health care!
My referrals come from word-of-mouth sources: clients and their families, home health agencies, hospice, podiatrists, residential care facilities, etc; and I refer my clients to appropriate sources when needed. I visit private residences, assisted living and nursing facilities, hospitals, extended care, and wherever my clients are located.
Many of my clients have diabetes and/or thick nails; victims of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, stroke; some hip/knee surgery patients and/or those that have general conditions of the aging process (they just can't reach their feet anymore!). They receive foot care every 2-3 months on average, as needed. Manicures are also on my list of services as well, if included with a pedicure.
