Foot Care

 

Care of feet is usually taken when there occur some problems with them. However, the complex structure that keeps us standing right to deserve good attention. It is the feet that keep us upright taking up the full body weight.  

 

Moreover, if you are a diabetic then you are most likely to opt for a  nursing care plan for the diabetic foot as a result of the problems which come along with diabetes. Diabetes can cause nerve damage, reduces blood flow to the feet and puts you at higher risk for blisters and infections. With diabetes, small foot problems can turn into serious complications. Therefore, it is important to take good foot care for a diabetic patient’s healthy feet

There are factors such as exposure to cold temperature, prolonged sitting for a long time or smoking which reduces blood flow to the feet. Due to wear and tear injuries, poor circulation or improper nails can cause many foot problems.

The exposure to the dark, damp, warm environment can cause athlete’s foot- fungal and bacterial condition. Due to these infections, it can cause redness, blisters or itching. If not treated immediately then it can become chronic. So, to prevent your feet from damage make sure to keep them clean and dry. For any fungal infection, you can treat it with a fungicidal powder.

 

Make sure to choose a good shoe for your feet. Many times due to the friction and pressure of bony areas against shoes result in corn and calluses. You can also check with a podiatrist to get good fitting shoes. Skin growths warts occur due to viruses and can spread if left untreated. Get professional care to remove the wart by surgical treatment.

 

Following physical exercises such as stretching, walking and gentle massage promote blood circulation and ensure healthy feet. Moreover, wearing comfy fitting shoes can also prevent foot ailments.

 

Poor fitting shoes can develop Bunions that deforms or weaken the foot. The swelling on the feet can be treated with wearing proper shoes that may provide relief. The protective pads can protect the painful area. Also, it can be treated by applying drugs or sometimes with surgery.

How We Made A Difference

  • foot care, foot-care  If there was an option of negative stars then I would have choosen it. They offered me a package of₹ 5950/- for 10 days and after 2 days updated me on new package of ₹5700/- for 7 days without my consent. Even deposited my earlier cheque and then I had to follow up for the balance for about 10 days explaining my issue everyday to the new person on their helpline. They don't acknowledge emails too. Worst experience and definitely not recommended

  • foot care, foot-care  We had a ridiculously pathetic experience with them. Took an attendant service, a 10 day offer (rs 600 instead of their regular fee of rs 800), for my mother who had undergone an knee replacement surgery. In six days, 4 different attendants were assigned for no fault of ours. We had terrible experience going through the back-end team trying to explain the importance of sending only one attendant and not a different one every new day. The last person assigned wanted to leave by 5pm even though the timings were from 8am to 8pm. With this many other terrible instances in these 6 days, we had no option but to cancel the services. The back-end team were utterly useless in understanding the importance of having only one person assigned. They kept insisting that we pay for 800rs per day for 6 day and offer of rs 600 per day would be invalid. The management should look into this scam and take immediate action on the team. Note: Even though we wanted the services, we were forced to abandon it with no fault of ours. The back-end team has absolute disregard for the grievances of the client.

  • foot care, foot-care  Unqualified office staff, when you call to clarify something. Many times they don't understand the question. They are not trained well. The customer care staff needs an upgraded system, where notes are fed into the system. So you don't need someone else calling up and giving you the same info. The caretaker is not trained well. If they are looking after an elderly person, they should know that they have to be in the best of health to look after my mother. She ended not making a meal for my mother and my neighbour had to provide it. If the caretaker is not well she should have asked for a replacement asap and not waited. It is shocking, we have paid a huge amount of money for this service and I am absolutely unhappy. Please do not call for caretaker's from Care24. As long as they are getting their money. They care a damn!!! Worst service providers.

  • foot care, foot-care  My father had a hip bone surgery in January. I have been using Care24 services ever since. The attendants that cane were good in the beginning. However their services have become good to bad to worse to worst in the last 15 days. They changed the night attendant without informing me personally just 6 hours before the time. My father had just settled down with the last attendant and now they were sending a replacement tonight. To add to my frustration the guy didn’t turn up and did not answer the calls. When I called their call centre - they said they can’t help me at this hour. Well- I can’t help but call them CARELESS CARE24.
