Health Equipment Loan Program
Through H.E.L.P. people can borrow a variety of medical equipment, such as:
- Shower seats
- Wheelchairs and more
This equipment is loaned at no cost for as long as it is needed. (There is a deposit of $10 or $25, depending on equipment loaned, which is refunded when the equipment is returned.)
Referrals for HELP come from:
- Local health and social service agencies
- Hospital discharge planners
- Others who are aware of a need that our program can fill
To be eligible a person must meet financial guidelines that show limited resources.
These guidelines are flexible, and special situations and circumstances are taken into account.
An initial phone call from the referral source starts the process.
