“Fancy Feet” is scheduled EVERY THIRD WEDNESDAY at First Reformed Church as a service to our area’s 55+ community to assist with vital foot care needs.
Deb and Sharon have been providing Foot Soaks, Nail Trimming, and Foot Massage to our seniors for years. People initially come for foot care and keep coming for the fun and fellowship that have become a natural part of the atmosphere.
For information about their services, any costs and to make appointments please call Deb at 815-213-0324.
Fancy Feet is held in the Library of First Reformed Church at 510 15th Avenue in Fulton IL 61252 every THIRD WEDNESDAY of the month. Please park in the lot on 6th street behind the church building and enter through the side entrance. Handicapped parking is available and the side entrance is an accessible entrance with a lift chair if needed.
Note: Fancy Feet is an independent organization that utilizes the facilities of First Reformed Church to provide this health care service to local seniors. Other than providing free accommodations as a service to seniors in our community, First Reformed Church of Fulton is not otherwise associated with Fancy Feet.
Why Seniors need to take special care of their feet:
● Foot problems are more common in seniors. As people age, their feet tend to become thinner, weaker, and less flexible. This can lead to a variety of foot problems, such as calluses, corns, bunions, ingrown toenails, and plantar fasciitis.
● Foot problems can lead to serious complications. If left untreated, foot problems can lead to infection, ulceration, and even amputation. This is especially true for seniors with diabetes, who are at increased risk of developing foot problems.
● Proper foot care can help prevent foot problems. There are a number of things that seniors can do to care for their feet, such as:
○ Wearing comfortable, well-fitting shoes.
○ Keeping their feet clean and dry.
○ Massaging their feet.
○ Trimming their toenails properly.
○ Seeing a podiatrist regularly.
● Foot care is important for overall health and well-being. Healthy feet allow seniors to remain active and independent. They also help to prevent falls, which are a major risk for seniors.
