Care from the comfort of your facility

We offer a comprehensive and inclusive aged care podiatry service for every resident. We are fully equipped with everything required to provide the same high-quality care you expect from a clinic in your village or care facility (Rest Home).


Quality foot care is vital for your residents' health

With age comes the tendency for our bodies to not work quite like they used to - and after decades of walking, running and living, our feet are no exception. This makes excellent foot care critical for your residents - and an important part of maintaining their mobility, independence, and well-being. We understand that for many, travelling to professional clinics often poses a barrier to receiving quality care - which is why we bring world-class care right to your doorstep.

Why invite us to your facility?

For our team, delivering excellent aged care podiatry care to every resident is just the beginning. We are on a mission for better health, one pair of feet at a time. We take the time to make every interaction a meaningful one, delivered and received with kindness, genuine care, and a warm smile. Knowledge is power, which is why we take the time to answer questions, educate and go beyond what is expected.

We love our facilities, too.

Alongside improving the lives of the residents we treat, it’s important to us to build strong relationships with our facilities - and to make your podiatry days easier - not confounded by additional hassle. We see ourselves as a team that is founded on respect, reliability and always going the extra mile to do the right thing.

Your feet are in good hands
