“During this whole pandemic I haven’t let anyone in my home except care givers and my family. I am so ashamed of my feet, but you made me feel so comfortable and safe. Thank you. My feet feel fantastic  when can I see you again.”  CB Amherst

Sandra Foster called to let us know that her husband Donald has passed. She raved about the care he received from Kate and the advice Kate gave her about rubbing his feet and legs with coconut oil made his last days so much more comfortable. She said she has passed out all of the cards Kate gave her to family and friends and she could not say enough good things about us.

“One of my favorite things at work is to receive a call from a customer who just raves about the care that they received from one of our nurses or how much better they felt post care. It just makes my day knowing what we do really makes a difference”  Brady FCBN customer care coordinator 

“Just a quick note to thank you for your recommendation for EcoSox compressed stockings. They work well, and even more importantly, I can take them on and off.” Note from a patient who has been struggling with compression socks. I promised him that I had some tricks up my sleeve to help him

“I wanted to share my pleasant surprise that I had today. I saw a patient (in my other nursing job (VNA)) and of course during the visit, I assessed her feet for edema, nail care, pulses, etc. As I was examining her feet, I noted her lovely feet and very nicely trimmed nails. I asked her if she had WMEC services and she said yes. I said do you have services from FCBN? And she said yes she did. Well of course she did! Those feet looked like a million bucks and she was very grateful for the great care. I felt very proud of her nurse (sorry, I can’t remember who saw her) and the good work our agency does.  Keep up the great work.”   Sue FCBN Nurse and RN

Hi Kate,  Just dropping a note to thank you for your presentation. You were so informative in explaining all about our balance and our shoes, and how important our feet are.  Feet are a big part of our body. Those of us who experienced the changing of the laces noticed a huge difference.  Everyone that was there was so interested in everything you had to say.  We cannot thank you enough for taking time to come and share all your information with us. We will definitely be in touch in the future.  Thank you again. K &L from Holyoke

just a note….I had a VERY NICE experience last week at my first appt. LOVELY nurses, you have there. D* Nov 2017

“A year ago a young girl from your company, named Jovi came to my home to take care of my Mom’s toenails. she was wonderful, and even though my Mom had dementia and never let anybody ever touch her feet, Jovi was so wonderful and took such care with amazing gentleness that I will never ever forget it.”

I don’t want to lose my other leg. With your care not only is my foot and leg well taken care of, you have also helped me understand how I can take better care of myself. Thank you. P* age 62

FootCare by Nurses has literally saved my feet and exercise routine. And for the first time in years, these 65 year old feet are mostly pain-free. I found Kate via a referral from a friend after experiencing years of costly, ineffective podiatrist appointments. Most of the treatments were not covered by insurance since I was not a diabetic and the copays were outrageous; orthotics in the $100s and procedures (reducing calluses, etc) that required additional fees on top of the copays. When I asked the insurer if they were OK with my taking a scalpel to my own feet, they didn’t have much of a response other than I could challenge their denial of benefits. Then I found Kate, who assessed my feet during the first appointment and put together a treatment plan that was less expensive then each of my co-pays. She took the time to listen to my concerns, and assess my needs. She was realistic about what could be improved and what might not change. My calluses are under control and I am free of ingrown toenails; I am walking and exercising regularly with less discomfort and the cramping in my feet is considerably reduced. Reflexology and massage are my favorite parts of each appointment along with the conversation. I schedule these appointments on a regular basis just as I do the massage therapist and the chiropractor. It’s what I need to do to keep my body in as good a shape as possible as I tackle these ‘senior’ years. My feet will never be pretty…..but they are functional and that’s all that matters. I am enormously grateful that a practice like FootCare by Nurses exists. Everyone, regardless of age and foot issues should have access to this type of care. June 2017 Linda

Thank you for coming, I was so looking forward to seeing you. Your care makes such a difference to both me and my feet. Thank you. H, on hospice Oct 2017

In the midst of medical/health problems, my feet had been at the bottom (lol) of the list of care. Cruising Facebook one day, I found a mention of foot care that led me to Footcare By Nurses and calling changed my foot life!  My difficulty of even local travel was solved easily as Kate appeared and not only cared for my toenails but performed some magic massage on my feet and the next morning I had my own feet and ankles back without the uncomfortable and ugly (yes, I am a little vain!) swelling I had had so long – swelling the meds hadn’t solved.  This one visit proved to me how important professional foot care is for the whole body.  I am so grateful for that continued care from Kate and Footcare by Nurses.  June 2017 – Shirley, Age 83
