Foot & Toenail Care

Ionia County Commission on Aging provides routine foot care (toenail trimming) in the home for Ionia County seniors. $10 per hour charge for this service, performed by ICCOA’s In Home aides.

ICCOA is unable to provide foot care to those with diabetes or who take blood thinners. However, diabetics may be covered by Medicare Part B if service is performed by a podiatrist, and you are under the active care of a doctor of medicine or osteopathy who has documented that you have diabetes.
