Our Nurses are Experts in Foot Care
Nurses are educators and patient advocates. They are knowledgable, empathetic listeners with a broad base of skills. Nurses have the functional knowledge base and experience they need to care for people, no matter what condition they may have. While nurses are not able to diagnose medical issues, they have trained eyes and ears—and a keen sense of perspective. When a nurse calls a doctor’s office with a concern about a patient, the doctor listens. Nurses also understand that being mortal requires some TLC for both the patient and the caregiver.
Our practitioners are experienced registered nurses who are board-certified experts in foot care. We serve Franklin, Worcester, Hampshire and Berkshire counties of Western Massachusetts.
Appointments are available in our Greenfield Clinic or in the home.
We offer regular field clinics at Senior Centers, Councils on Aging, and other venues around Western Massachusetts.

FootCare by Nurses Management Team
Our founder, Kate Clayton-Jones MBA MSN RN is currently pursuing a PhD in Clinical Nursing at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. Her area of study is person centered care and prevention through foot care. Kate says she was motivated to start FootCare by Nurses because she saw too many people in acute care having their toes or feet amputated after sitting with IV bags for weeks dealing with infections. She thinks that nurses need to play an active role in preventing falls and foot ulcers from happening in the first place and that they can do that using TLC, evidence-based practice and nursing knowledge.
