Foot Care in Senior Citizens – What
you Need to Know
Foot problems are quite common with senior citizens. These problems can be either
because of normal wear and tear on the feet over time. They can also be sign of other
serious illness like arthritis, diabetes or other nerve disorders. This is the reason why it is
important for senior citizens to practice good foot care. It is the responsibility of the health
care providers and the family members of the seniors as well as they themselves to help
them with foot care.

It is important to check feet regularly and if they feel that there is a serious problem, they
should check with their doctors immediately. If you sit for long period of time, you need to
put your feet up to improve circulation, stretch and walk regularly, take a warm foot bath,
and massage your feet and also dry feet carefully. Most of the time it is the wrong shoes
fitting that causes the main problems.

It is quite common for shoe size to change with age. One needs to measure their feet
weekly at the end of the day. Many people have one foot that are larger than the other. It is
important to wear shoes that fit to the larger size foot. It is important to try out shoes
before purchasing them to ensure that they are of the right size. You need to walk in the
shoes before purchasing to be sure they feel right. One should avoid shoes that have heels
and are not comfortable. Avoid purchasing shows that are tight in hopes that it will stretch.
Soles should be fitted properly and not slip. The shoes should have thick soles that will
cushion your feet when walking on hard surface.
