Nail cutting service
Do you have difficulty bending to reach your toenails or have limited strength or dexterity which prevents you looking after your own nails? We have a simple service just for you. One of our specially-trained Nail Care Workers can arrange to come to your home to cut your nails at a time that suits you.
At our first visit, we will supply you with your own personal set of nail clippers and nail file in a small case. We charge you the cost price for these (currently £10.50). We will only use the clippers supplied by us, and they remain at your home so they only get used for you.
There is then a charge to cut your fingernails or toenails, but discounts apply if you have both sets done, or if there is more than one person in a household receiving the service. Currently the single service charge is £17, rising to £29 for two cuts in one visit.
Payment is made by Direct Debit or by Bank Transfer or Debit/Credit card over the phone following an invoice issued after we have visited.
If you are interested in this service, please get in touch using the contact form, or call our Care Centre between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday. If you have diabetes or are taking anti-coagulant medication, such as Warfarin, we will need to contact your GP surgery to confirm that it is safe for us to cut your nails. Our Nail Care Workers are not chiropodists, so if there are significant problems with your toenails, you may need to have your GP refer you to a chiropodist to deal with the presenting issues before we can take on regular care.
