Function and Safety
Functioning feet are dependent on routine foot and nail care. Foot pain, long/thick nails, and skin issues can put your safety at risk.

Every foot is different. Some are ticklish, some are tired, and some need extra care and attention. Cape Cod Foot Care cares about the foot and the person attached to it. A holistic approach is taken to provide care that you need and want.
Cape Cod Foot Care, LLC is a home-based solution to routine foot and nail care for all Cape Cod residents.

Foot Care Nursing
Registered Nurses and Licensed Practical Nurses can perform foot care in Massachusetts if they have special education and training. Certification guarantees compliance with the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing Advisory Ruling on Nursing Practice, which requires nurses to have education (knowledge) and training (skills) to provide foot and nail care.
The two certifications are Certified Foot Care Nurse (CFCN) through the Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB) and Certified Foot Care Specialist (CFCS) through the American Foot Care Nurses Association (AFCNA).
RNs and LPNs cannot submit claims to Medicare, which selectively covers "Routine Foot Care". Most routine foot care is considered a personal care service and not a medical service.
