Giselle's Foot Care 

STERILIZATION & INFECTION CONTROL:

 Visiting Foot Care Nurse

​​​​My name is Giselle Daghri and I am a Registered Practical Nurse in Ontario since 2011. My previous 18 years of work experience consisted of a variety of one on one initiatives which included personal trainer, figure skating coach, fitness tester and instructor. My clientele ranged anywhere between the ages of 3-90 with the goal of achieving the possible fitness levels and quality of lifestyle possible for each individual.


Assisting such a diverse group of seniors, children, competitive athletes and persons with health challenges was a rewarding experience which lead me to my current transition into my nursing career. I hold a degree in Nursing and Kinesiology from York University. I am certified in Advanced Foot Care Nursing making both my previous experience and current training a perfect fit to provide a customized foot care program for any individual’s needs.


Having worked as a nursing staff in long term care homes, I realized that nursing has many challenges with
balancing work loads and lack of staffing levels. High demands and high number of Residents to nurse ratio in long term care settings make it very challenging for staff to provide routine care for patients who require foot care and treatments. With a high population of older adults and families in our community, I have found a demand for this specialized care. There is a strong need for foot care nurses in our community especially in long term care settings where people need more assistance with maintaining mobility. I take great pride and joy in foot care and have found the relationships I have formed to be very rewarding.


Foot care has many health benefits and routine care is very important especially for those who have mobility issues or existing health problems. Quality of life is of utmost importance to me and it reflects in my caring program. People experiencing foot care report it enjoyable, relaxing and therapeutic and appreciative of such a specialized care.


For those in need of assisted living or who have care providers benefit from regular foot care visits as it helps reduce staff workload when the individual has improved mobility, a reduction with foot health problems and an overall improvement for the individuals well being.


Giselle’s Footcare is proud to provide foot care to residents in their homes living in Orillia and surrounding area. I also speak Hungarian 
and French in addition to English.
