The goal and mission of the Jefferson County Public Health Foot Care Program is to assist seniors and other vulnerable populations in Jefferson County in staying healthy by maintaining their mobility.
Jefferson County’s senior community has grown rapidly in the last few decades. In 2009 Jefferson County’s median age was 50.2, an increase of 15 years since 1980; 13 years above the Washington median. 9% of Jefferson County’s population is over the age of 75.
The JCPH Foot Care Program helps this population maintain independence and mobility by providing foot maintenance at community centers and at clients’ homes. Foot maintenance includes services that a client can no longer perform on themselves, such as filing calluses, cutting nails, and tending to sores resulting from diabetes.
