After routine regular foot care has been established on your second visit I would be happy to at the end of the appointment provide a 10 minute foot soak using your own equipment while I chart, and dry your feet and apply your footwear before leaving
I love to share what the positive feedback I get from those that I take care of.
Thank you, Denise! Her feet look great. The care home is also doing more regarding that, so I am happy she is more comfortable now. Thank you again.
