Experts in mobile Podiatry
We understand the importance of community and home-based Podiatry services. Many clients today have difficulty finding transport and time to attend all their podiatry appointments. We make it easy by offering a fully comprehensive in-home Podiatry service, making podiatry home visits easy.
Our home-visit podiatrists are highly qualified and are equipped with all the latest tools to provide a safe and effective in-home service. Our service is particularly beneficial for the elderly and disabled who have difficulty reaching their feet to attend to them and leaving their home. We can also help with busy parents, shift workers and anyone who is pressed for time.
How we can help
Podiatrists are health care professionals responsible for the prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of feet, ankle and lower extremity structures. People with multiple health conditions and comorbidities are at higher risk of suffering issues with their feet. Our skilled and qualified podiatrists can detect, assess, treat and prevent further issues from arising. It’s important your condition is detected and treated earlier to prevent it from worsening.
We provide a number of mobile podiatry services, these include:
- General foot care including toenails, corns, calluses
- Ingrown toenails
- Treatment of heel, ankle and foot pain
- Vascular and Neurological Examinations for patients with Diabetes
- Footwear advice
Foot health | Podiatrist near you
It is common for people over the age of 60 to be suffering from one or multiple chronic health issues. These health issues could have an impact on foot health which could lead to an increased risk of foot ulcers, foot pain, poor mobility, increased falls risk and much more.
Major foot issues can be extremely debilitating which can result in loss of mobility and independence due to pain. With the guidance of a Podiatrist, you will learn to perform your own foot health checks, foot hygiene and have a better understanding of appropriate footwear for your condition.

- If you have a poor choice of footwear
- Unable to trim own toenails

We accept a range of different funding types. Discover our fees and charges.
Do you trim fingernails?
Unfortunately, Gen Physio podiatrists do not trim fingernails, as this is not within the scope of practice of podiatrists.
How often should I see a Podiatrist?
Regular podiatry care is recommended between 6-8 weeks each consultation. This allows your feet and the conditions you may be suffering from to be regularly monitored and kept in check.
What to expect during the home visit?
A podiatrist can help you with any issues that involve feet and ankles. They help people treat problems with a patient’s foot or lower legs after an injury or surgery. The visit often starts by asking questions about your medical history. To find out more about your first podiatric home visit, please give us a call.
Can Podiatrists or Chiropodists provide home visits?
Yes, there are some Podiatrists or Chiropodists who offer home visit services. It’s important to check with the specific provider or clinic in your area to find out if they provide an in-home or home visit service and under what conditions. Home visits can be a convenient option for those with mobility issues, difficulty traveling, or people who prefer a more personalised service in the comfort of their own home. A home visit service can also be beneficial for the elderly and disabled who have difficulty reaching their feet to attend to them and leaving their home. Always make sure to ask about any additional fees and the specific services that can be provided during a home visit.
Are there any free podiatry services available for pensioners?
Availability of free podiatry services for pensioners can vary depending on your location and local healthcare programs. It is recommended to check with your local healthcare provider or community health centre to find out if such services are available in your area. If you are suffering from a chronic disease, you may be eligible for Chronic Disease Management (CDM) referral for Podiatry services from your General Practitioner (GP). It is important to ask your GP if you feel you may be eligible for this funding. Older Australians that meet certain criteria’s may be able to access Government funding through a Home Care Package. A Home Care Package ensures you get affordable care services at home, with little to no, out of pocket costs.
