Feet are the foundation of our lives. We put a considerable amount of pressure on feet and for the most part, our feet put up with this sort of abuse rather well. However, not taking care of feet, especially later in life, can result in some adverse side effects.
Foot care is very easily overlooked in the elderly as attention is usually paid to health problems such as joint pain, illnesses, and mental health. However, having healthy feet, especially for seniors, is very important as feet lose cushioning with age and nails can get brittle. This can slow down the healing of sores and make it very difficult for seniors to walk.
Making sure your aging loved one has healthy feet can dramatically improve their quality of life. Here are some of the benefits of foot care.
Foot problems can cause mobility mobility problems. The longer the feet are keeping your senior loved one up, the longer they can keep a healthy and active lifestyle going.
Many seniors have poor circulation in their feet, which can slow the healing of foot sores. A foot massage can greatly improve the circulation.
By keeping a close eye on feet, you can spot early warning signs for health problems. Health problems such as poor circulation, diabetes, nerve damage, and arthritis can all have a noticeable effect on feet.
