Toenails

Clipping/cutting your toenails . Who struggles with this task? Between struggling to see them and using the clippers it's very difficult.

Not a task to be relished and while I manage ok I think I too find it awkward/difficult.
Given your difficulties can you get a podiatrist to do this for you as part of your care package?

I'm not sure I'd qualify to use a podiatrist. I'm not sure having difficulty cutting your toenails counts.

Just looked up some fees for nail cutting - £25-30 plus!
