In-Home Foot Care

In-home visits include assessment of the lower leg and foot, foot care and finger nail trim/file if needed. In-home visits may be covered 80% by insurance – we recommend contacting your provider as a doctors note may be required.

Diabetes Foot Care

Diabetes foot care involves ongoing preventative care as well as diabetes foot risk assessment and 10-gram monofilament testing for diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Diabetes assessment follows Inlow’s 60 second diabetic foot screen.

Due to COVID-19 all care in long-term care homes has been put on hold.


Infection Control

All foot care instruments used undergo a strict sterilization process with use of an ultrasonic cleaner and autoclave, thereby reducing the risk of infection. Instruments are individually packaged and sterile until point of use. Bacteria and fungus cannot be killed by chemical soaking. Best practice standards are met in all areas of foot care!
