Look after the feet by applying moisturizer to prevent dry skin and cutting toenails straight across. Make sure to have footwear that fits properly and supports the feet. If they’re sore it may be tempted to stay in slippers, but a pair of trainers could be a good option as they are more supportive. Contact the GP if the feet become painful, feel very hot or cold or if having common problems like corns, bunions or ingrown toenails.
Sole Support -– As people age, the fat pads on the bottom of their feet compress, creating fatigue and pain. Consider wearing supportive shoes or inserting foot pads for better stability and comfort or socks that have extra padding and a wicking agent to keep feet dry and comfortable.
