Thoughtful Gifts for Senior Feet

Giving gifts has been an essential part of holiday celebrations for generations. At times, though, it can be challenging to find that perfect gift. This can be particularly true of the seniors in our lives because it can feel like they already have everything they could ever want or need. This holiday season, items to help the seniors in your life care for their feet might be the perfect gift. Today, our podiatrist, Dr. Hubert Lee of CarePlus Foot & Ankle Specialists is sharing some ideas.

Senior feet require a lot of loving care for many reasons. For one, as we age circulation is not as robust, muscles, and connective tissues begin to weaken, bones start to get thinner, and seniors become more vulnerable to serious diseases that affect the feet, such as diabetes.

Taking special care of the lower limbs helps prevent serious problems from occurring, and allows seniors to maintain their flexibility and mobility. Some simple items can help seniors care for their feet – and they can make great holiday gifts too!
