The OP doesn't mention anyone helping with personal care prior to his taking over but I would imagine that any previous care workers were either qualified to cut nails or ignored the rules and did it anyway.
I expect this is the reason the OP is asking for help because Health and Safety rules prevents him or anyone not qualified as a nail technician from cutting a clients nails. Stupid, I know but that's Health and Safety for you. Therefore the OP wants to be able to qualify for nail cutting to be allowed to do it.
I would have thought that by using todays safe Nail Clippers rather than scissors would be in itself pretty safe. Damn H&S and the silly laws, that's all I can say.
Sorry I can't help further, Lee.
