Footloose Industries keeps people on their toes

Stemming from a passion for helping people, Ellen Fyfe founded Footloose Enterprises in 2003.

Footloose Enterprises offers residents, mainly seniors, of the Elk Valley with many valuable services such as private duty nursing, palliative homecare, respite nursing, geriatric nursing, travelling nurse/companion, nursing foot care and foot care facials.

With 16 years experience as a Licensed Practical Nurse, Fyfe has spent much time working in the Elk Valley Hospital and the Sparwood Health Care Facility. “I love my profession, and I really wanted to spend more time with people, rather than just tending to their immediate needs,” said Fyfe.

“It’s really nice to be able to know my clients on a personal level and build relationships with them. Unlike when they are ill in the hospital, at home they are well, and taking on day-to-day activity. I get to help them and assess their needs on a one on one level,” she said.

Fyfe applies holistic principals to create a caring, alternative approach to health and wellness. Her certification as a foot care specialist provides services to enhance health and lifestyle for those in need of foot care.

For people, and those with diabetes especially, nursing foot care helps improve circulation, and helps prevent potential infection. “It is so nice that she just comes to my home and helps me. It is so much easier than me always having to go out,” said one of Fyfe’s foot care clients.

“Foot care facials are designed for those who like the ultimate foot pampering,” said Fyfe. “I use top quality facial products on your feet, to leave your feet soft and your whole body rejuvenated.”

Her costs for nursing foot care and foot care facials are $40/session and nursing care costs are based on individual needs.

Fyfe extends her helping hands to those in need in the Elk Valley and hopes that she will be able to grow Footloose Enterprises while creating lasting and meaningful relationships with clients.

To speak more with Fyfe on her services she can be reached at 250-423-7650 or 250-430-7378.
