Welcome to Blackmore Vale Foot Care

Professional Foot Care in the Comfort of Your Home.

About Us

Looking after our feet is important in helping to maintain comfort and mobility but, particularly as we get older, this is often easier said than done!

Blackmore Vale Foot Care provides a professional, friendly and confidential foot care service in clients’ homes. Fully qualified and insured, all common foot problems are treated, for example, corns, calluses, ingrown, difficult to cut nails and general foot care. Diabetic foot assessment and care is provided, along with a nail cutting service. If necessary, and with the clients’ consent, referrals are made to chiropodists/podiatrists when clinic treatment is required or when a bio-mechanical assessment may be beneficial. Liaison with GPs and community nurses are also made should the need arise and, again, with clients’ consent.

Based in Marnhull, but now covering most of North Dorset and neighbouring areas, the service was established in 2005 by Gillian Walsham. Clients appreciated home visits as this saved the hassle of making a trip to town! Due to increased demand, Gillian was joined by her sisters Rosemary Prince and Caroline Fryer and in 2018 Anna Rhys joined the team. Professional indemnity insurance and current DBS clearance to work in people’s homes is in place. Many clients book regular appointments of between six and eight weeks but some request a visit on an ‘as and when needed’ basis.

As well as visits to clients’ homes, we visit local residential/nursing homes and local hospitals at the request of clients, staff or relatives.

Our Services

We provide treatment and advice for the following conditions :-
null

Diabetic Foot Care

It’s very important to look after your feet if you have diabetes as it can reduce the blood supply to your feet and cause a loss of feeling.
null

Corn Removal

When corns appear on weight-bearing areas of the foot, the pressure caused by the corn can make them very uncomfortable and quite painful to walk on.
null

Callus Reduction

Calluses are hard, thickened areas of skin. They are often found around the heel or under the ball of the foot as these areas take most weight when you walk.
null

Cracked Heels

Dry, cracked heels can be a source of pain and can look unsightly. Cracked heels are usually caused by dry, thickened skin splitting under pressure.
null

Nail Trimming/Thinning

Our nail cutting service is available to those who have impaired eyesight, reduced mobility because of arthritic changes, or an inability to reach their feet.
null

Ingrown Toenails

This develops when the sides of the toenail grow into the surrounding skin. The big toe is most commonly affected. The nail curls and pierces the skin, which becomes swollen.
null

Fungal Toenails

They’re not usually serious, but can be unpleasant and difficult to treat. The infection develops slowly and causes the nail to become thickened and distorted.
null

Athletes Foot

Athlete’s foot is caused by a fungus that usually appears between or under the toes or the bottom of the feet.
