On-Site Foot & Ankle Care that Goes the Extra Mile
Spa Creek Podiatry arranges on-site personalized foot and ankle care for residents of senior living communities. Many residents at these communities are not eager or capable of making a trip to the podiatrist. Having to arrange for transportation while dealing with cognitive, memory, or mobility challenges can make a trip to a specialist’s office almost impossible.
That’s why our podiatrists and clinician team come to you. We bring our equipment into your senior living community, so residents don't have to leave the comfort of their home to receive care. Nothing could be easier.
Patient Podiatry Services
Our podiatrists and medical team are trained and experienced in working with geriatric and memory care patients. We provide comprehensive examinations and can address a wide range of foot and ankle issues. Our goal is to treat medical conditions affecting the foot or ankle, relieve patients’ symptoms, and help them remain as mobile and active as possible. We can also provide our patients with an assortment of custom-made and off-the-shelf orthotics.

Special Care for Diabetic Patients
Many older residents in senior communities have chronic medical conditions, including diabetes. Patients with diabetes require special foot and ankle care. In fact, including care by a podiatrist in the treatment plan for patient with diabetes can reduce the risk of amputation by as much as 85%.
Regular appointments with a podiatrist – even if a diabetic patient’s feet aren’t bothering them – is important to diabetes care management and overall health.
Because diabetes can limit blood circulation and cause nerve damage, simple problems like a cut or abrasion on the feet can quickly escalate and may even become life-threatening. The healthcare team at Spa Creek Podiatry can be mobilized quickly and effectively to provide the type of foot and ankle care your residents need. This includes nail trimming, ingrown nail care, wound care, pain management, callus treatment, and providing diabetic shoes to patients who require them.
“I just returned from my mother’s dental cleaning. In the past, my wife has accompanied my mother to the dentist and assisted by keeping her calm during her exam and cleaning. Spa Creek Dental was able to perform the procedure without any help from us. I was absolutely amazed. They have a gift for working with Alzheimer’s patients, and it was a very positive experience for my mother. Thank you.”
