The care of toenails and fingernails is often discarded as a minor aspect of personal care, even though having healthy and clean nails is hygienic and can prevent the onset of infections.
Older individuals and those with disabilities or conditions can often find taking care of toenails particularly difficult.
Toenails and fingernails protect the tips of toes and fingers from damage. They are made of a protein called Keratin and can provide an indication of general health.
If toenails and fingernails are not cleaned and cut correctly, you may be at risk of getting fungal infections, brittle nails and nail splits and it might not be possible to detect any abnormalities that could highlight other health problems.

“Having had reflexology at the Hospice as part of my bereavement therapy I found it so beneficial for my well-being and recovery I wanted to keep having it at regular intervals. It is a truly wonderful experience. Having been a hairdresser and on my feet all day time has taken its toll and I have a couple of corns and hard skin which I can have done at the same time. Bliss!! I am walking on air in every way when I leave.”
“My brother Duncan has special needs. His feet were shocking, really dry, rough skin and thick / dry toe nails and in desperate need of cutting. I brought him to Solace after hearing good reports off my friends and can only say the treatment he received was nothing but professional. He had the full treatment and his feet were transformed they looked amazing when finished. I have no hesitation in booking a next appointment for a home visit. He was even given some Heel Balm cream sachets to take home. Fantastic, friendly service and will be recommending to my family and friends.”
