Foot care, nail care, and leg care are important aspects of the activities of daily living associated with hygiene. Unless linked to a specific disease/diagnosis, such care from a skilled nurse is not fully Medicare reimbursable.

Heale Wound Care provides a private service in southeast Vermont for foot, nail, and leg care. The cost per person is between $25 and $50. The expected time frame for a visit is 35-60 minutes. If traveling distance is excessive, there may be a negotiated cost. To book an appointment, please email Margaret or call 802-376-8249.

The service includes a regular lower extremity assessment, nail cutting, and callus/corn treatments with foot and leg hygiene. Client and caregiver education and training are included.

Aspects of lower extremity care, such as wound care and compression wraps/stockings, can also be provided with or without nail care. Specific products, such as dressings, wraps, pads, and offloading devices, are provided separately as needed.
