Foot Care

Feet are the foundation of our lives. We put a considerable amount of pressure on feet and for the most part, our feet put up with this sort of abuse rather well. However, not taking care of feet, especially later in life, can result in some adverse side effects.

Foot care is very easily overlooked in the elderly as attention is usually paid to health problems such as joint pain, illnesses, and mental health. However, having healthy feet, especially for seniors, is very important as feet lose cushioning with age and nails can get brittle. This can slow down the healing of sores and make it very difficult for seniors to walk.

Benefits of Foot Care

Making sure your aging loved one has healthy feet can dramatically improve their quality of life. Here are some of the benefits of foot care.

Having an Active Lifestyle:

Foot problems can cause mobility problems. The longer the feet can keep your loved one mobile, the longer they can keep a healthy and active lifestyle going.

Improved Blood Circulation:

Many seniors have poor circulation in their feet, which can slow the healing of foot sores. A foot massage can greatly improve the circulation.

Early Identification of Health Problems:

By keeping a close eye on feet, you can spot early warning signs for health problems. Health problems such as poor circulation, diabetes, nerve damage, and arthritis can all have a noticeable effect on feet.
