Medical Equipment Loan

Medical equipment can be a large and unexpected expense for many people, especially if insurance doesn’t cover the items needed. To help address this issue, FROM’s offers a medical equipment loan closet where people can borrow medical equipment and use it as long as they need. Filled with donations from the community, the equipment is inspected and cleaned before being loaned out.

When you donate to FROM your donation helps our neighbors address financial issues, food insecurity, and more during this pandemic. You help us provide HOPE to our neighbors in need.

Who Can use the Medical Equipment Loan Closet?

FROM’s Medical Equipment Loan Closet is available to anyone living in the area who needs medical equipment.

How to Borrow Equipment:

The Medical Equipment Loan Closet is open during normal office hours (see below). You do not need to make an appointment, simply come in during regular office hours and let the receptionist know you are here to borrow medical equipment.

The receptionist will walk you down to the Medical Equipment Loan Closet so you can see what items we currently have available.  You will need to fill out a short form (name and contact information) and then are able to keep the equipment for as long as you need. We do encourage you to return the item if it’s no longer in use so we can put it back into rotation for others to use.

What Kind of Medical Equipment is Available?

Because all our equipment is donated from the community, the items available does vary. We often have items such as wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, canes, toilet risers and portable commodes. We also regularly have incontinence items such as adult diapers.
