ARNOLD PODIATRY (Rotherham)
Life today feels so busy that we have less time to fit everything in. Trying to book an appointment around work and family commitments can be a nightmare. Or having to book transport to get to that appointment can be costly. For some, even getting out of the house can be a real challenge. This means that things like sore feet often get ignored. Arnold Podiatry is different. We will come to you, either at home or in the workplace. We provide a full podiatry service, including diabetic food care and general foothealth. We also provide information and advice about other foot health issues. Evening and Saturday appointments available.

1. Action Plan
1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?
The health of everyone’s feet is very important ,as people become less mobile foot health can become more of an issue.
A person with dementia requires all elements of their health being monitored closely to give them the very best chance of living well .
If we become a dementia friendly service we will be more equipped to offer a quality service to the clients we have now and in the future with dementia.
The fact that we are a mobile service can be extremely helpful for families and individual coping with dementia.
2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
To become dementia friendly we need to source more information about dementia and find out any way we can do more for our clients.
