Aged Care Services

Why Us?

The Podiatry Group was initially established to service aged care facilities alone. While we have since broadened our horizons to include 3 private clinic locations,  We are still dedicated to providing the high quality service in which we were founded.

 

Respect. Think Big. Stand Out.

 

We’re just describing some of the many values that make the The Podiatry Group so successful in working well with each other as a team and with our residents.

 

We deliver outstanding care to the elderly and service over 500 residents at aged care facilities not to mention the many more we service in our private clinics.

 

Our podiatrists are “all rounders”- not only clever at what we do but also honest, kind and considerate individuals.

 

Our podiatrists feel that their work has more meaning than just a job and this is why the care we provide is exceptional and the feedback we receive confirms this. We are unlike other large podiatry companies where the CEO never picks up a pair of clippers. Our directors are very hands on and are also involved in servicing aged care facilities. Podiatry for Aged Care is our thing and that’s why we’re so good at it!

 

Our directors know the ins and outs of ACFI funding and accreditation- 10 years of nursing/care coordinating in an aged care facility should do it!

 

This experience has given us the insider knowledge that founded our passion for podiatry in aged care. This understanding has not only helped our residents, whom we adore but has assisted our aged care facilities rightly receiving the funding they deserve.

 

More About Us
How We meet ACFI requirements

Our staff are familiar with the ACFI User Guide and the importance of aged care funding for the facility to continue to provide a high standard of care that meets the needs of all residents.

 

We bring experience with successfully assisting nursing homes through ACFI validation visits relevant to our podiatry input.

 

We are a regular set of eyes and ears for the patient. As we have the same podiatrist attending each facility our staff are able develop a rapport with the residents. The residents confide in us, often about concerns unrelated to their feet such as depression, mobility/functional decline, increase in pain.

 

With the consent of the resident our staff are able to feed this back to the facility staff and doctor. This not only allows for early detection and intervention to meet the residents needs, it also allows the resident’s ACFI to be considered and possibly attended again to increase funding.

How we meet accreditation requirements

We provide our podiatrists with accreditation training so they may be of assistance in support visits or full accreditation visits. 

 

We are always happy to meet with the accreditors to provide feedback on the positivity of the nursing home and our role in meeting accreditation requirements. 

 

We provide regular surveys for residents and staff to obtain feedback about our service and how we have met each of the podiatry relevant standards of care.
