Medical Lending Closets

Medical lending closets are a great alternative to purchasing expensive home medical equipment.  They rent or loan gently used medical equipment to area residents on a short-term, temporary basis. Medical equipment varies from each location and inventories change quickly, depending upon demand and donations.  Equipment typically include wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, bath benches, commodes and toilet raisers.

Contact your local lending closet for a listing of equipment available, deposits and fees, terms and restrictions, and loan qualifications.
