More About Us

 

We work closely with the aged care staff and treating GPs to organise podiatry referrals allowing your residents timely access to podiatry care.

 

Residents with EPC/CDM referrals in place are eligible for up to 5 visits at no cost to the facility/resident per year, this dramatically reduces the financial impact on the resident or facility leaving the payee out of pocket for only one visit per year (based on a standard 8 weekly visit).

 

All resident’s under the Department of Veteran’s Affairs are covered for all of their podiatry treatment.

 

We visit regularly meaning we will come every week or fortnight depending on the size of the facility. This allows us the ability to capture any new residents without them having to wait a long time. It also allows us to keep a keen eye on any complicated cases that may need extra attention for a period of time.

 

We guarentee that each facility will have one podiatrist dedicated to them and this ensures consistent care. This also allows our staff to develop relationships and become a part of the team.

We are here to help with:

  • Podiatry care plans for each resident to ensure foot health is part of the holistic picture of their care needs

 

  • Podiatry foot assessments: we look at callous and other pressure areas, nail deformities, bony deformities, blood flow issues and much more

 

  • We supply and use industry standard sterile equipment and dressings

 

  • We provide thorough handover that involves discussion to and documentation for the team care leader

 

 

 

  • We provide all of our aged care standard documentation including: police checks, registration certificates, insurance certificates, first aid and CPR certificates- all your documentation needs for accreditation purposes

 

  • Emergency podiatry visits at the standard rate or bulk billed (whichever applies). As we are so frequently visiting this is often a rare need

 

  • Regular opportunity to provide feedback to our team

 

  • Education for staff and residents to help maintain good health of their feet

 

  • Calendar entries for residents and staff so they know exactly when we are visiting
