Foot Care Program
Country Roads Community Health Centre
Nursing foot care services are available to registered clients of Country Roads CHC every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. We do have limited capacity to see everyone, so we focus on those who have circulation problems, difficulty caring for feet at home and who do not have health insurance coverage. Ask your health care team to learn more about preventative services to keep your feet well.
Specialized Chiropody services are provided to registered clients of Country Roads every Monday. Eligible clients are those whom do not have any health insurance coverage. Referrals to our Chiropodist can be made for clients who are have calluses, corns, fragile skin with pressure lesions, thick nails, cracked or reddened skin with localized foot pain or for those requiring orthotics.
Clients at most risk can also be seen by the Thousand Island /Rideau Tay High Risk Chiropody Initiative. This initiative is specially designed to provide Chiropody care to individuals who have chronic illness (diabetes, vascular disease) and advanced foot problems and those who are most at risk for foot issues. Eligible clients are those who do not have any health insurance coverage or who have exhausted their insurance coverage for Chiropody services. You can ask to be seen at a location that is closer for you.
