As feet grow older, they can naturally develop problems. But painful and uncomfortable feet do not necessarily have to be a normal part of ageing and can often be addressed by a podiatrist.
mecwacare provides a podiatry service from its clinic at the Barry Fenton Centre in Malvern East. Regular podiatry treatment reduces aching feet so that people can enjoy walking and moving around without pain. It can also prevent falls, which is especially important for people living with diabetes, who can have prominent foot-related issues.
Regular podiatry treatment assists with:
- Long nails
- Hard skin
- Dry heels
Who is eligible: People who live in the City of Stonnington and surrounding suburbs are eligible for the mecwacare podiatry service.

Where: mecwacare Barry Fenton Centre, 72 Bowen Street, Malvern East. Phone: 03 9564 5100 to arrange an assessment.
