Nail Cutting

Prama offer a Nail Cutting Service if you have poor mobility, poor eyesight, are a low risk diabetic or take an anticoagulant e.g. Warfarin.  Our Nail care workers are trained by the PCT Podiatry services department.  Your doctor or medical surgery will need to confirm that it is safe for us to cut your nails rather than a fully trained chiropodist, we will take care of that for you.

There is a fee of £17 to cut your toe nails or finger nails, discounts may apply for people in the same household and for additional nail cutting.  We will supply to you, at the first visit, your own set of clippers and nail file in a small case, the charge for these is £10.50.  We will only use the clippers provided by us. If you would like to have your nails cut with us, please get in touch by ringing Prama on 01202 207308.

Local areas covered are Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole, Blandford, Wimborne and Ferndown.

Prama continue to flourish

The Dorset charity is working hard to provide support to both private and local authority clients.  Paula Jones, Operations Director, says "We are thankful to still be growing and in a strong position to support all our clients through our domiciliary care service and the ever-increasing number of community activities we provide around Poole, Bournemouth, East Dorset and beyond.  We have come a long way in the last 35 years, since Dr Chris Moran started the charity with volunteers in 1987 and have built an organisation that demonstrates resilience and sustainability in response to the increasing demands on the sector.  We still believe, as Dr Moran did, that a Christian based charity can make such a difference to people's lives." 

Paula continues, "The challenges faced across the sector affect us, as they do many care organisations.  Whilst we have a reputation for being a great employer we still struggle to recruit care workers, who are in short supply.  We simply don't have enough staff to take on the number of clients who want our services."  

The increasing reference in the wider media to the social care crisis and the BBC Panorama programme (aired on 20th March), clearly indicate the extent of the problem being faced by the social care sector.  This isn't a problem that will be easily resolved - the government's promise in the recent budget to provide an additional £2 billion to councils in England over the next 3 years to spend on adult social care services may only dent the surface. 

It's encouraging to know that at Prama, the care they deliver to clients who are funded by the local authority is just the same high quality as they deliver to private clients - as Paula emphasised: "We provide an identical service to our local authority clients.  We don't discriminate in any way and firmly believe that no-one should be disadvantaged because they are not eligible for funding."
