Hand, Foot, and Nail CareStreaming Video - 2011
Ironically, the parts of the body we use the most also tend to be the most neglected, medically speaking. As we age, it becomes more and more important to address the wellbeing of our hands and feet, and in caring for the elderly it is vital to give attention to these frequently overlooked areas. This program identifies common hand and foot health problems, explains the changes that occur in aging hands and feet, and illustrates techniques for keeping these extremities functioning well. Rheumatoid arthritis, hand and foot exercises, topical and dermatological skin care, nail maintenance and warning signs in fingernails, and the benefits of hand and foot massage are all discussed. Designated for 2 contact hours of continuing nursing education.
