There are many reasons why seniors may need a foot care nurse. As we age, issues such as declining vision, lack of dexterity and reduced flexibility can limit our ability to care for our own feet. Aging factors, such as thinning skin, medication use and disease processes place seniors at an increased risk for foot infections. Fit feet become even more important as we age.
When we meet with patients, we do a professional assessment of their current foot health. We will discuss specific concerns of the patient - nail trimming, callus treatment and any foot care goals the patient may have. Everyday Divinity provides services for these conditions with a gentle approach using only sterile tools. Our services are provided in a comfortable environment to preserve the patient’s health and contribute to their peace of mind.
We take a careful interest in your feet. Nail integrity, shape, thickness and growth patterns vary and tend to change as we age.
Routine foot care visits involving trimming, thinning and filing of toenails are designed to improve a patient’s mobility, decrease their fall risk, provide overall foot comfort and promote better shoe fit.
Regular maintenance of your nails will allow you to lead a more active lifestyle while improving your overall health and wellness.
The integrity of skin and other parts of our feet may be compromised as we age, leading to issues that can affect overall health and mobility.
Thinning fat pads on the bottom of our feet can lead to calluses, as the body tries to compensate for the reduction in padding. This can impair our overall walking and balance.
Changes within the aging foot, often caused by misaligned bone structures and loss of skin elasticity can lead to corns, calluses or cracked heels.
Feet inevitably change over time – the overall size, width, and structure can vary substantially as we age.
Some changes can be due to trauma, disease processes and medication use. Other changes occur as a result of normal wear and tear or increase in weight.
Everyday Divinity professionals can assess these changes and make recommendations tailored to meet your lifestyle and foot health needs.
I think this is fabulous for our aging seniors. It’s a service provided in a comfortable manner. We aren’t just a number and they are nurses doing what nurse do –providing care versus looking at a computer. As a retired nurse I respect the service and hope it grows.

I am pleased to recommend the services of Heather Wilson of Everyday Divinity. She comes to my house every three months and brings relief to my poor aching feet. This she does with great skill, professionalism, and of course with a fine "footside" manner. I value her service especially as I'm growing older and it becomes harder and harder for me to properly care for my feet. I am grateful that Heather is there to help.

I'm elderly and unable to take care of my toenails. Some of the nails were very thick due to fungus. I saw Heather's advertisement and called for an appointment. Heather did an awesome job! She has been at my house twice now and my toenails are looking so much better. Call Her! You won't be disappointed. To top it off, she is 'cute as a bugs' ear!
