    Toenail clipper tips & FAQs

    Which nail clippers are suitable for seniors?

    Choosing the right nail clippers for older adults is important to support an easy and safe nail care experience.

    As we age, our nails become thinner, less elastic, and more brittle. Nails may change colour and become more brittle, particularly the toenails. They may become prone to splitting and fungal infections. These factors can make the nails more challenging to cut.

    Manual clippers are the most common type of clipper. However, as with many nail clippers, they can require more hand strength and dexterity, which can be difficult for some seniors.

    Here are some features to look for when selecting nail clippers for seniors:

    Large, easy-to-grip handles: Older adults often benefit from nail clippers with thicker, ergonomic handles. These are easier to hold and require less strength to operate.

    Wide jaw opening: A wide jaw opening accommodates thicker nails that are common in older adults. This prevents the nail from bending or becoming damaged during trimming.

    Sharp, precise blades: Sharp blades ensure a clean cut with minimal effort. Dull blades can cause splitting or jagged edges and can be an unnecessary struggle when cutting nails.

    Accessibility features: Clippers with built-in nail catchers or magnifying glasses can make the process easier and safer, reducing the risk of nails flying off or accidental cuts. A long handled nail clipper can be considered as reaching down to the toes can be challenging. However, with this extension can come less control of the cut.

    Quality materials: Look for clippers made from durable materials like stainless steel. They are less likely to rust and can be easily cleaned to support foot hygiene.

    When considering which nail clippers are suitable for older adults, it is important to take into account individual needs and to weigh up ease of use, nail clipper jaw size, safety, and quality that supports effective foot care.

    Nail trimming tips for older adults

    As we age, our nails become thinner, less elastic, and more brittle. Nails may change colour and become more brittle, particularly the toenails. Nails may become prone to splitting and fungal infections. These factors can make the nails more challenging to cut.

    To support an effective cut, consider the following nail trimming tips:

    * Soften nails by soaking hands or feet in warm water before trimming
    * Trim nails straight across to avoid ingrown nails
    * Use a nail file to smooth any rough edges after clipping
    * Carefully consider quality, safety and cleanliness of nail clippers to ensure a clean, controlled and precise cut

    Always consult with a healthcare professional if there are concerns about nail health or if you have a health condition such as diabetes, which can affect nail care.
