A bit about who we are.....
FEET2U, a division of AssistU Care Services Pty Ltd, started in April 2012. We offer mobile footcare to senior citizens and those with diminished self care capabilities in the home, social or work environment.
Our Registered Nurses are specially trained in general footcare and the management of minor foot problems such as thickened nails, corns and callous. We are a clinical nursing service and comply with industry best practice including infection control standards. So you can trust that you will receive the very best of care.
Our nurses can also assist you with over the counter pressure relieving devices, remedies and moisturization therapies plus help you with compression stockings, long reach toe washers and other items which can assist your daily living activities. We can also advise you on appropriate footwear and help you get comfortable shoes and slippers.

FOUNDER AND DIRECTOR
We currently service metro areas in Southern Tasmanian and frequently visit more remote areas including Nubeena, New Norfolk and down The Channel region.
For people who have a Home Care Package, our services can be provided as part of your care regime. Just let your case manager know that you would like FEET2U as part of your service package.
In 2020 FEET2U will be expanding Statewide in a franchise model. Our vision is to have our unique service available to every Tasmanian wanting the FEET2U Experience. And we won't be stopping there - watch out mainland Australia, here we come!
If you are a Registered Nurse, passionate about community care and FEET, then why not consider purchasing a FEET2U Franchise? You will be your own boss and finally have the freedom to treat your clients how you really want them to be cared for with the bonus of having a work/life balance that gives you the flexibility to enjoy your family and friends around your work life. Drop us a line - it could be life changing!
So how much does it cost?
If you live in the metro area, an initial visit from FEET2U will cost $75 and take around 40 minutes. Ongoing care costs will depend upon your care needs and visit length. The nurse will discuss these with you at consultation. Discounts are available for 2 or more people in the one residence. We are happy to travel, but travel costs may apply.
We offer services Monday through Friday during business hours but are happy to arrange visits out of these times if required by negotiation.
As we are a nursing service and NOT podiatrists, there is the occasional foot that is beyond our scope of practice. In this case, we will refer you to specialist care and often we are able to work collaboratively with your specialist to maintain your foot health.
Unfortunately, as a nursing service, we are not rebatable under Medicare, DVA or Private Health Funds, but our clients find the convenience of a home visit outweighs any such benefit.
Please note: the prices quoted are for Private clients. If you are receiving care from FEET2U under your Home Care Package, visits are more comprehensive and charged at a different price scale.
