Foot Care Clinic

The Foot Care Clinics at Putney Community Cares are FREE through Fall 2023!

To take advantage of this opportunity, you need to register for an appointment by calling the registered nurse. Registered Nurse Beverly Sinclair provides foot care clinics at Putney Community Cares. The Foot Care Clinics typically occur on the last Thursday of each month, though the schedule may change depending on the nurse's availability. The Foot Care Clinic will have appointments between 10:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. on the following dates, all Thursdays:


September 28, 2023
October 26, 2023

November 30, 2023

December 28, 2023

The R.N. can care for diabetic feet, but for those with issues beyond the scope of this Clinic, such as ingrown toe nails, infections, foot ulcers, etc., the R.N. can provide a free assessment and refer you to a podiatrist for care. Each Foot Care Session consists of:

  • Knee to toe assessments of skin, circulation, and feet

  • Anti-bacterial foot soak

  • Toenails trimmed and filed smooth and calluses reduced

  • Exfoliating foot scrub and therapeutic foot massage

  • Teaching appropriate foot care techniques to meet your individual needs

If we have additional funding remaining, the free Foot Care Clinic may continue through the end of the year. For the dates listed above, there is NO COST for your participation -- the costs of paying the R.N. is covered by grant funding. After the grant funds are depleted, we will return to having a sliding scale of $25-$35 per appointment. 

 

Pre-registration is required. To register, contact Beverly Sinclair. Email: bev@sinclair-chiro.com -- or call (802) 449-7385.

This funding has been been made possibly through congressional funding secured by VASCAMP (Vermont Association of Senior Centers and Meal Providers).  Because we are a VASCAMP member, we are able to take advantage of this generous funding for FREE Foot Care Clinics.
