Keeping your toenails trimmed is an important part of good foot health. For a variety of reasons, it can become quite difficult, if not impossible, to trim your own toenails on a regular basis. Certain toenail conditions can result in thick toenails, which make trimming even more difficult.
Toes ‘R Us is a toenail trimming service provided to individuals who may have a difficult time caring for their toenails due to poor eyesight, flexibility, diabetes, Coumadin therapy, or disability.
Clinics are held Monday and Tuesday from 8:30am to 2:30pm, or by appointment on Wednesdays, at the Carlton County Public Health office. For a fee of $20 (Carlton County Public Health can bill Medical Assistance) you can have your toenails trimmed by a professional nurse in a private environment. Also included is toenail filing and a brief foot massage with lotion. We ask that you please soak your feet prior to coming in for your appointment.
If you are homebound and otherwise unable to leave your home, we may be able to provide this service in your home for an additional fee.
This service is not intended to take the place of a podiatrist. If you have specific conditions that you are concerned about see your doctor.
New appointments always welcome. Call Carlton County Public Health at 218-878-3284 or 218-879-4511 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
