Like Community Care, local business owners Tony and Kelli Grady of Grady’s Feet Essentials have been supporting the community for many years. This year, more than ever, they wanted to help keep seniors mobile and active and are returning as a sponsor of Community Care’s Foot Care Clinic in Peterborough.
Tony started working with his dad in 1986 and spent many years manufacturing custom orthotics and fitting specialty footwear. In 1997 with his wife Kelli, they purchased the store, first naming it Grady’s Shoe Tree then to Grady’s Feet Essentials.
A lack of proper footwear can damage the foot’s skeletal structure. It is vital to ensure that your toes are not too cramped in your shoes and that they have enough room.
“In our store, we measure your feet and suggest footwear to best suit your needs from a large selection of top brands including Birkenstock, Blundstone, and New Balance,” said Kelli Grady. “Our staff regularly attend training seminars and are kept up to date on trends to ensure that your feet are in good hands. When you need great fitting, comfortable footwear, we’re here for you too.”
Community Care’s Foot Care Clinic is by appointment only and takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 am to 11:30 am at their Peterborough office on Hunter Street East. This clinic offers basic foot care, including skincare and trimming of toenails, for a fee of $25.00 per visit.
“We are excited to have Grady’s Feet Essentials as a partner again this year,” Danielle Belair - Executive Director of Community Care. “Tony and Kelli have deep roots here in the community, and because of their business, they both understand how important foot health is, particularly for seniors. Their continuing support allows us to keep providing this service in Peterborough at a reasonable cost.”
Whether you are walking or running, healthy feet are the foundation for maintaining your independence.
Foot problems can mean the difference between needing institutional care and being able to live at home; our feet are vital to health and mobility.
