Taking care of our feet, regardless of age, ensures a full and productive day ahead. However, when it comes to aging, especially to seniors receiving hospice care in Colorado, it is impossible to ignore that it is sometimes difficult to clean and preserve their feet. As a result, senior feet may become dry, flaky, and susceptible to ingrown or overgrown nails and infections.
Assist your senior in avoiding this issue! GENUINE HOME CARE AGENCY’s elderly companion services assist in spotting the warning symptoms of unhealthy feet and taking quick action to avoid serious consequences.
Our caregivers can assist you with soaking your senior’s feet in warm, soapy water to remove dead skin and debris buildup. We can also help with nail trimming and cleaning dry, flaky skin away from the soles and toes to reveal soft, healthy soles and toes. We make sure to value your loved one’s wellness from head to toe.
Proper foot care should not be limited to the confines of a nail spa. Be careful to clip your senior’s nails into a straight cut regularly. If you notice ingrown nails that you are unable to remove, make an appointment with a podiatrist at once.
Lastly, let your senior loved one wear comfortable shoes that fit properly. To avoid slips, trips, and falls, find good shoes’ whose soles have a good grip. They must also be cushioned to reduce sores and assist your senior with mobility.
Our private pay in Aurora, Colorado is always ready to lend a caring and loving hand.
