Direct care staff can play a key role in improving this area of resident care. Here, they will learn to understand common foot problems, practice preventive foot care, and recognize conditions that require further treatment. Detailed information is provided on these important topics:
the structure and common problems of the foot
medical conditions that contribute to poor foot health (e.g., diabetes, peripheral vascular disease, and neurological deficits)
proper assessment and examination of older adults' feet
common nail and skin problems
muscular and skeletal conditions of the foot
preventive measures to avoid frequent complications, including pressure ulcers, falls, and amputation
use of geriatric footwear
An educational booklet on foot care is provided for the use of long-term care residents and their families. Also included are a complete glossary of terms and a list of diagnostic codes and Medicare qualifications for common foot problems.
Appropriate for nursing homes, assisted living facilities, home health agencies, and other programs that care for older adults, this resource is useful as a teaching guide for in-service staff education or as a self-teaching tool.
