Medical Equipment Loan Closet

In October of 2017, the Committee on Aging launched a free Medical Equipment Loan closet. The loan closet relied on volunteers from the Committee and offered durable medical equipment such as wheelchairs, crutches, walkers, commodes and shower chairs.

In December of 2019, the Loan Closet was temporarily closed while the Committee explored alternative options for running the lending program. In August of 2020, local community based organization No Place Like Home agreed to operate and manage the program. Items are free  to borrow and arrangements for lending and for donations are made through No Place Like Home.
