Medical Equipment Loan Program

We are pleased to lend any Needham resident medical equipment at no charge, based on availibility in our collection. Do you have a visitor/family member coming who needs medical equipment, but can’t travel with it? Do you or a family member have a short-term injury or are having surgery and need equipment during the recovery period, but not forever?

Among the items available are:

  • crutches
  • wheelchairs
  • walkers
  • commodes
  • bath seats

Most equipment may be borrowed for short-term loans or as long as  6 months with the exception of our light-weight wheelchairs, which are limited to a 2-week loan.

If you have any questions about the availability of equipment listed or equipment not mentioned, please call our office at 781-444-2415 to inquire. Items can be picked up at our office at 570 Hillside Avenue from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday to Friday.

Do you have medical equipment that you would like to donate? Please call us before coming to inquire if we can accommodate your donation.

All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law; tax-exempt statements are available at our office.
